The first annual Shepherd's Shuffle to benefit The Shepherd's Gift: GM1 for HD starts at 7:00am on Saturday, September 30, 2017. Choose a quick 5K course that begins at the SDSU Research Park parking lot (2301 Research Park Way, Brookings, SD 57006) and meanders through the Research Park and beautiful McCrory Gardens; a 1 mile fun run winding through the Research Park loop; or team up and enter the 3 Mile Relay (teams of three "pass the sheep" to win). Walkers welcome! [Please note: the 5K route includes multiple types of running surfaces.] The first 150 people to register for the 5K, 1 Mile Fun Run, or 3 Mile Relay receive a free goodie bag which includes wool running socks donated by FARM TO FEET. Top male and female finishers in the 5K race receive a Sock Drawer Makeover donated by FARM TO FEET and valued at over $200. Cost of registration is $35 per individual for the 5K race, $30 per individual for the 1 Mile Fun Run, and $30 per team member for the 3 Mile Relay race. Each individual registrant will receive a fun short sleeved t-shirt.
All race profits benefit The Shepherd's Gift: GM1 for HD, a 501(c)(3) non-profit. The Shepherd's Gift:GM1 for HD is a grassroots, not for profit organization dedicated to raising funds to bring relief and hope to people and families afflicted with Huntington's Disease and other neurologic diseases, including Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.
