We continue to implement all public health restrictions advised by health authorities. There will be COVID-19 protocols in place for the event.
The event will be set up to ensure physical distance among participants is implemented, due to current COVID-19 safety precautions.
As new information is provided, we may need to modify aspects of our event for the safety of all our participants, volunteers and supporters. We will keep you informed of any changes related to the event.
Thank you again for your understanding and support as we do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
