DESIGN THE KIDS RACE MEDAL AND WIN $100
OGB needs your child's help to design the medals for the "Superheroes vs Villains" Kids Races scheduled for November 18, 2017. The winning design will be used as the design for the San Antonio Kids race and possibly be used nationally for other OGB events. Here is the best part! The winner will be awarded $100. So, design away! The design must be e-mailed to info@OGB1.org by September 15, 2017. OGB will collect the designs and a specially selected 5 person panel will vote on the best design. There are no rules for the design except to keep it clean and that the design should be completely created by a child. The winner will be recognized and receive their $100 prize on stage on November 18,2017.
100% of all donations raised from the Inaugural OGB "Superheroes vs Villians" 5K/10K Run.Walk.Roll and Kids Race (minus race expences) will suport wounded warriors, their families, and the children of our Fallen Heroes.
