Here’s the scoop:
Inaugural maCares Tribute 5K Run/2.5K Walk:

WHERE – Country/Jaycee Park in Greensboro, NC or Your Own Location as a Virtual Participant
HOW – Register at https://runsignup.com/Race/NC/Greensboro/maCares5K
WHO – All 2 legged humans, including those little humans in strollers and friendly, leashed 4 legged furry animals
