The cost is $100 per team, no limit on how many members. Eight people to start, two girls must start. Must be 13 years old and up to participate. Registration begins at 5:30pm in the main lobby.

All proceeds will benefit a new water bottle filling station for the Coleman High School and The Smile Train Foundation. Coleman students are hoping that installing a water bottle filling station in the school will help to eliminate the waste of plastic water bottles.
