Each year UCP hosts the run, which began as a corporate run over 25 years ago, which raises money to help children and adults living with disabilities live a "life without limits". The evening started out with the wheelchair race (both electric and manual) then the runners took the course, with first, second and third place awards being given to the winners in several different categories. The presence of PRG was well-received with many participants asking about derby or sharing the stories they recalled from watching derby as kids. It was also a great opportunity to promote our May 12th bout both at the finish line and at the After-Party which took place at Jack's Firehouse in Fairmount.
Thanks to the skaters and officials who represented PRG at this very special event, we hope to be asked back again for next year's event which will undoubtedly be bigger and better than this year's record attendance!
