Note: GOTR Fall 2018 program participants WILL NOT need to register for the Candy Cane Dash-we are expecting you! In keeping with the GOTR non-competitive ethos, GOTR Girls will NOT be timed, and as such they are ineligible for any performance-based awards.

Santa can't do it alone.  He needs his elves just like we need ours.  Lets hope Santa's elves are as good as our volunteers!
