Gallop For Gravy
Gallop for gravy began about seven years ago and has grown into a family tradition. From the first year, the race was meant to be fun for everyone and just a healthy way to start Thanksgiving. From there we began raising money for worthy organizations in our area.
For the past several years Children's Charity Ministry of Harrison has been our primary charity. In 2017 we were able to donate $1700 to CCM. This is almost one full month of their current backpack budget for area students. Our goal by 2020 is to raise $6000 each year for this program.
New This Year
A few new things we are doing this year:
- Donation Bin for CCM at the race and at early pickup. This is for non perishable food items as well as clothing and other gently used items for the CCM thrift store.
- Early pickup at Nature's Wonders. Details coming soon!
- Alpena Volunteer Fire Department donation. AVFD has helped with the race since the beginning. Starting in 2018 we have decided to donate a portion of the proceeds to AVFD for everything they do for the community and for Gallop for Gravy.
- WE HAVE LONG SLEEVES! Many of you love our soft T-shirts, well we still have them, but we now have an option for a long sleeve performance wear shirt as well.
