All proceeds from this race support Special Olympic Athletes and volunteers. McKean County has expanded their sporting opportunities this last year with youth soccer and youth basketball. “We would like to offer more programs in every area of our county not just for athletes located in close proximity to Bradford.” Says Marie Costello, Director of Development for The Wilds Region. “To be able to offer more (programs) we need to raise funds for equipment, uniforms, clearances, rental fees etc.. There will never be a cost to the athletes for any of our programs or services, so we need the community’s support.”
