A $3,000 donation from Shell WindEnergy, co-owner of the NedPower Mt. Storm wind energy project, has added significant incentive to Run For It racers and it demonstrates the company's commitment to safety.
Part of their contribution will provide for a dedicated EMS crew on-site on race day and the remainder will support race day grant awards.
Strong support from the business community and a number of generous individuals has the Run For It award purse exceeding $70,000, the largest in race history.
