Fast, Slow, Young, Old... We want to take you on a Wild Goose Chase!
The Wild Goose Chase to benefit Whole Children will be held at Look Park, on Sunday, May 21, 2017, from 10 am-1:30 pm, and is an inclusive family event for all ages. Help us fundraise by spreading the word with a personal fundraising page. Raise funds on your own or as part of a team. Awesome prizes are available to our top fundraisers! Most importantly, you'll help children to chase their dreams by supporting after-school programs, like performing arts, social skills, and sports & recreation classes, for kids and teens of all abilities.
