For all the CRMS preschool organizers, parents and volunteers for many tireless hours needed to put on such a great race. Thank you to Peak Party Rental for the spectacular tent, tables, and efficient delivery and pickup. A big thank you to Sandy Joyner at the town for selling all those tickets – you are amazing.
