Thank you to all of our sponsors and racers that participated in the 2019 Crusade Run.  We are truly blessed by all of your support. 

Our weather forecast did not looking promising for the morning race, however, we had several angels watching over us  and the rain held out until the last participant crossed the finish line and we were packed up and headed home!  We know we had some beautiful children looking down and watching over all of us. 

We do want to again apologize for the technical difficulties we experienced with the timing of the race.  It was very unfortunate that we were unable to have everyone’s race times available.  We hate that we had that happen.  Unfortunately it was out of our control.  

Join us Saturday, April 6th at the Playtri Store in McKinney for The Crusade Run benefiting DFW families battling pediatric cancer! The race will offer a 1K fun run and 5K and 10K courses. Participant will receive a race T-shirt, finisher medal and a race bag filled with goodies and special offers.  Come and enjoy a fun-filled morning while helping these special families.
