Our Team is adopting this very special young man, and hope you will help. You can donate online, or stop by Saturday March 1, anytime 9:00am - 12:30pm to help raise the money we need to send him to school for 2014! We will be running mini-workouts starting every half hour, and will have Chikumbuso bags and items for sale.
