Terry said “I believe in miracles, I have to. Even if I don’t finish, we need others to continue. It’s got to keep going without me.”

It will be a fun day and you will be a part of Terry’s Marathon of Hope!

Don’t forget the Mayor’s Challenge – come out and help your community to get as many participants as possible!!
