Racer Quote…

Alden Freeland, Gill, MA

Thank you for making this race a part of our community again! From collecting sponsorship, to building the cart, it has been a blast for my daughter Shayla and I. You guys bringing something to the community that everyone can rally around and show local pride is just fantastic. We can't wait!
