Looking to help Tails even more? Share your fundraising page with your friends and family. The top fundraiser will nominate the 2019 Master of Ceremonies. The MC is featured on the website, t-shirt (as a caricature) and will ‘lead the charge’ on race day. Plus the money you raise will help even more animals in need!
