Meet Hayden & Logan...two brothers (they're 2 of 3...yes, they're triplets) who went in together with all the money they had saved over 4 years of working weekends to buy Clifford (The Big Red Truck) a few months after they turned 16.

We're now almost one year later, and Clifford needs a good bit of repairs.  True to their nature, they didn't want a hand out...they wanted to earn the money to keep Clifford taking them back and forth to school, band, work, and the myriad of other after school activities that today's High School students do.

Hence...The Save Clifford 5K.

"We want to do a night race...because the glow in the dark races are our favorite!"

We've reserved the quiet streets of Downtown Dawsonville, GA...And we've secured all of the Five Star gear to put on the biggest & bestest glow event you can imagine.  Glow lights, music, finish line refreshments, loads of fun, and it's just $5 to run.  We're even going to have some awards for the 3 fastest M/F winners.

Event Beneficiary


Hayden & Logan are working pretty much every aspect of the event...before, during, and after.  They've been working race events since 2009, and will be putting all the money earned towards making sure Clifford will continue to get them where they need to go.


They've decided that any monies earned above & beyond what Clifford needs will go to "some other High Schooler in need of transportation help."
