MIRACLES HAPPEN WHEN WE CONQUER THE GIANT
Runners, Walkers, Crawlers and Cyclists are invited to "Conquer the Giant" in May at the Annual Giants Head Grind - Christopher Walker Memorial Race. Proceeds go toward colon cancer detection, diagnostics and research, as well as the upkeep and improvement of the trail system in Giant’s Head Park.
Colon cancer does not rest during a pandemic, and neither will we.
