Could your place of business use an awesome team-building excercise?
 You can join the Human Race!  There a couple of ways you can participate:

1.  Invite your employees, co-workers, family and friends to come out on April 4th to join you as a race participant.  You can all select the same nonprofit to support with a portion of your registration fee - or each select as you choose. If you already support an organization, check to see if they are participating.  If so, simply enourage your supporters to select their name from the drop down menu at registration.  If they are not signed up to participate, you can direct them to this page where they can learn how to sign up.  Remember - the deadline is February 28th for nonprofits to sign up, so have them act quickly! We've even created a special HOW TO Packet for Corporate Team Captains!


2. Become a sponsor for The Human Race.  Get great publicity and secure a number of complimentary entries.
