Toys for Tots Fun Run @ Dubuque Salvation Army
This is not a race, it is a social run that the MVRA does for charity. Bring a new unwrapped gift or cash donation to be donated to the Salvation Army. There will be two groups, one will do a 3-4 mile loop to the Lock and Dam and another 9 mile Tri-State loop. This year will feature a children's scavenger hunt in the shop windows of downtown, so the whole family can join in the fun.
