THE KIDS' DASH
A new element of this year’s event will be the Kids’ Dash, where the first 200 kids, 5-12 years old, will have the opportunity to run on the Carter-Finley Field - either a 20-yard dash or 40-yard dash based on age.
Following the game, the team and coaching staff will be available on the field for autographs for 20 minutes.
