Running to help others!

Arlington Bunny Hop 2018 was a total success and was enjoyed by over 600 people including racers, volunteers and entertainers.  Events like this remind us of what a fantastic community we have.  The event was very special with 582 runners registered, lots of medals, and a total of $22,000 raised, of which, after expenses, $7,000 will go to our beneficiayry, Bridges to Independence.
     - Entertainment on the course included the Clarendon United Methodist Church Praise Band, the Trinity Brass, and "Tuba man"--all performing to make Race Day enjoyable for all.
     - 5 star reviews went to race volunteers, Arlington County Police and EMS services, and race snacks!
     - Bunny Hop Fund Facts:  The largest team was the Yorktown High School Lacrosse team with 30 runners.  The farthest distance traveled for a racer was a family visiting NOVA from India.  And runners under age 10 received medals no matter "how" they crossed the finish line!
     - Great weather for Arlington Bunny Hop 2019 has already been ordered!
