The Sonoma County Human Race is the largest charitable fundraiser in the country. GFFL has participated in this event for several years now and it has grown to be one of the biggest fundraisers for our group. This event historically has been on Mother’s Day weekend, but this year it’s a week earlier to avoid conflicts. This event is held in Santa Rosa and with the fires that struck the region in October, I would expect a large turnout to help the area. Here are the details.
Date: Saturday, April 28
Start Time: Meet up at GFFL booth 7:30 AM, walk starts at 8 AM
End Time: usually done by 10:00am
Where: Herbert Slater Middle School, Santa Rosa
Event Theme: Sonoma Strong, Better together.
Our costumes/theme: still evolving, but here is what is in the works. Rebuilding (Dogs will wear “silks” with blueprints, humans hard hats and tool belts.)
Too far? Too early?? That’s OK, you can still help. When the Human Race website goes live (hopefully in the next couple of weeks), each group will have a page within it. Individual team members will create a page to raise money; they will set goals to achieve and to ask for donations. But you don’t need to walk to set up a fundraising page! You can set up your own, or you can donate to an individual or to the group. The idea is to hit our overall goal. We will send an update when the website is live and the Team page is created and you can donate to help us help GFFL.
