As we, the community, grow more sustainable and strive for a healthier lifestyle, we look to our leaders for support and echo the changes we want to see in the world.
With the “Mayor’s Cup Challenge” we give our leaders an opportunity to get involved with us and show their support to many great causes. Not to mention, the Turkey Trot provides a perfect course in which our leaders have the chance to challenge cross-county rivals in a spirited competition.
