Welcome & Start of Fun Run

9 AM

This is not a timed or competitive race. You can walk or run, one lap or the entire hour; it's up to you.

Many walk in the company of friends and loved ones. Others choose solitude and contemplation. Some even bring their leashed dogs.

However you baby step, open your eyes and look around. Everyone you see that day: that's your support, your family, your tribe. If you're one of eight, you're one of us.

One Mile Route

At La Salle Park, there are two routes. We use the shorter one. However, we give you an hour. So if you want (or need) to run further, go for it. However, most people walk.

Captains Only

 

10' x 10' Tent spaces are SOLD OUT

You will receive a reservation number in your fun run packet. Your tent reservation number will correspond to labeled utility flags at the event. A Sarah's Laughter volunteer will be available to help you locate your tent space.

Team Captain Ticket Totals

Since we have three major sponsors with door prizes, we have three ticket barrels. For each ticket number you have (whether through registrations or donations), you will be issued three color-coded tickets, each for a different barrel, each with the same ticket number. This means the total number of tickets you must fill out (or, preferably, labels you print) is under the column "Tx3." Please email us if you have any questions about your tickets.

Latest Ticket Count: 3/21/2018 4:36:32 PM

Support Letter

Can’t find the words to ask for support from friends and loved ones? We have a sample letter for you. Feel free to change it up and make it your own. Just be sure to replace [spouse] with your spouse’s name and [Team Name] with your actual team name. Good luck!
