November 22, 2018 – Berbee Derby
The Berbee Derby is an annual 10k run / 5K run or walk that takes place every year on Thanksgiving Day. 100% of the proceeds stay within the Madison Community and support organizations and groups that benefit children, teens and adults who do not have access to technology. Money raised from the event goes directly to grants which in turn provide much-needed technology resources to under-served demographics throughout the community.
Each year, MVS has a team who participates in the derby. It’s a great cause, a great way to get some exercise in and a great way to give yourself an excuse to have an extra slice of pie after Thanksgiving dinner.
