Charity Partner is Hannah's Treasure Chest

While many families are fortunate enough to provide for their babies, toddlers and children, many parents struggle in raising their children with sufficient resources. Hannah’s Treasure Chest responds to these needs by providing nonprofit and social service agencies in Butler, Greene, Montgomery, and Warren Counties with clothing, baby equipment, diapers, hygiene items, toys, books and other essential items for their clients. The assistance from Hannah’s Treasure Chest greatly enhances programs already provided to children in the Miami Valley. We are asking athletes to support Hannah's Treasure Chest by donating money or items.

Please bring to race day any of the items listed here!

Sign up to volunteer here.
