This year AvantGuard is holding the event to benefit Leo Thurgood. Leo is the son of Josh and Jenn Thurgood. He is considered an “O” baby, meaning he was born with an Omphalocele, a thin layered sac that contained his liver outside of his body.
100% of the race proceeds and donations will be given to the Thurgoods
Each day [Leo] continues to take small but important steps towards a full recovery. We are beyond grateful to all those who have and are supporting us through this challenging yet special time in our lives. -Leo’s Parents
