All of the money raised goes to the Agora Crisis Center, which provides free confidential help to anyone in need of emotional support. “So, this event was organized to raise money for us, which we are so grateful for,” says Molly McCoy Brack, clinical director at Agora Crisis Center.

They handed out prizes in several categories based on six age groups, for best male and female runners, as well as best male and female runner overall.
