This year's Come Together event features an exciting addition! The Brothers of Sigma Phi Epsilon are hosting a family friendly healthy start to our day, that is also a way to give back to 5 local philanthropies. Anyone is welcome to participate in the event as an individual, parent-children team, aunt, uncle, grandparent or even grandchildren. Everyone is encouraged to team up and support each other and our community in the effort.
The race begins at 10am at the intersection of 6th Avenue and Wood Street, Clarion, PA 16214. There is a $20 entrance fee for the race which will be divided equally between the following five local agencies: Big Brothers Big Sisters, Clarion County YMCA, Clarion University Relay for Life, National Multiple Sclerosis Society - Northwest PA Chapter, and Northwest Pennsylvania Rural AIDS Alliance.
