Mark Murphy and David Barnette have nurtured this event to where it is of the caliber of The Mayors Corporate Challenge or The Polar Bear Plunge.  Mark Murphy has agreed to gift this event to the Rotary Club of Milton under a few fair conditions over a three year transition period starting now.  He is including Rotary in his marketing and is asking only for volunteers in this first year.  Additionally, we are planning to use the Rotary VR to attract and engage the community in Rotary.   Here is a website for the event:  https://www.bikesignup.com/Race/GA/Milton/SPOP
Clean-up, motorcycle support, and VR are areas we need to solicit volunteers. Folks can do motorcycle and VR and still participate in the clean-up.   Here is the sign-up location:   https://runsignup.com/Race/Volunteer/GA/Milton/SPOP
