Downhill Cardboard Box Sled Race

Challenge your co-workers to race a sled against other companies for a great cause. Friends and neighbors can join in on the fun with the family division. This year we are adding a costume tubing contest! Race the tubing runs in your best costume for prizes.

The race start time is noon, and this year proceeds benefit The John J. Nerden RTC Camp.

The John J.Nerden RTC Camp serves the community and the special people within it. Supported solely by private funding from local businesses, civic organizations, clubs and individuals, dedicated staff make this camp an invaluable resource every summer for children and adults with special needs.
