The 16th Annual Yellow Rose Walk/Run will take place Saturday, August 10 at 9 a.m. on the shores of beautiful Lake of the Woods at The Point in Warroad, Minnesota. We are excited to share that in addition to the 5K race, a 10K option will also be available for participants this year.
The proceeds raised from race registration will go to HELPP (Help Ease Local People's Pain), which is an organization in Warroad that assists local people undergoing difficult circumstances that cause financial burdens. The help they provide comes in the form of gas cards, certificates for food, and other types of support for those experiencing hardships.
For more information, or if you are interested in volunteering at the event, please contact Brittany McGregor at 218-386-4222 or BrittanyMc@marvin.com
