Before you celebrate with family and football, start your Thanksgiving by burning a few calories, catching up with friends and neighbors, and trotting around Mountain Lake to support cure-focused research and the empowerment of children living with Type 1 diabetes.

Awards will be distributed to the Top 3 female and male finishers in the following categories: Overall; 15 age groups ranging from 8 and under to 70+; athletes living with Type 1 diabetes; and Tri-Town residents (Mountain Lakes/Boonton Township/Boonton).  The Top 3 finishers pushing a jogger/stroller will also receive awards.
