Sunset 2 Sunrise Relay across Florida:
We are now less than two months away from our annual run across Florida. Please stay in touch with the event by visiting and checking in at the Bad Frog website. All team runner positions have now been filled. However, we are still in need of 2 additional drivers and 2 volunteers for the race course. Drivers, will be used to drive and navigate the course switching between RV and passenger van during the event. Course volunteers are used somewhere in the Palm Beach/Martin County area to secure exchange points or at the Finish line in Densen Beach If you would be interested in volunteering for any of these positions please contact Chris or Ann Gunn. As last year, we are once again running to raise money for The Real Life Children’s Ranch. This is our opportunity to provide something for the children that they might not be able to obtain through the regular RLCR Budget. Last year the monies we raised were able to send some of the children to summer camp. I encourage you to continue fundraising and if you need assistance please give Ann or me a call.

Please check the Bad Frog website occasionally for updates on training, events and notices.

We look forward to seeing everyone soon.
