Each year the race committee selects a charitable organizations as its beneficiary. This year, funds from the Run Your Buns Off race will help to support two Newfound area organizations;
The Day Away Program and The Newfound Pathways. The Day Away Program, a newly formed program designed to provide a period of respite for caregivers of Alzheimer’s and related dementia patients in the Newfound area by providing a social day program.
The Newfound Pathways, is a group creating a scenic and safe 17 mile pedestrian and bike route around Newfound Lake. Due to costly construction, completion of the route is slated at just one or two miles per year. The Run Your Buns Off Committee hope that with their help, The Newfound Pathways will reach their completion date much sooner.
This year I made a chocolate Moose and white tailed Fawn for raffle at the after race party. Hopefully lots of chances will be bought to win them and they'll go to a loving home.
If you can't wait to take a chance to win a moose you can find one in my shop.
