Got Angel Wings? Be a Brat Trot Angel and sponsor a student in need! Each year during our school competitions we encounter families with children who would love to run but cannot afford the registration fee or do not have adequate shoes to run in. Our goal is to raise $5,000 to support 200 students running in this year’s event. You can be a Brat Trot Angel and sponsor a local child in need so they can run the race without worrying about the fee!
