The 5k and 10k races will begin at 10:00 AM.

The Polio Purple Pinkie Trail Run has raised roughly $72,500 over the past 10 years for the Rotary Foundation’s Polio Plus Fund, the RCS Rotary Foundation Inc. and Immunize Nevada. All proceeds raised for Polio Plus are matched 2 to 1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This money directly supports immunization campaigns in developing countries where polio continues to infect and paralyze children, robbing them of their futures and compounding the hardship faced by their families.
