Organiser's Description

The Rat Race, hosted by the Huron Booster Club, is an annual fundraiser to support all sports offered at Huron! Home of the River Rats, Huron is a comprehensive high school in the Ann Arbor School District, with a student population of nearly 1800 students.  It has one of the largest populations of Schools of Choice students and low-income students in Washtenaw County.
Why is hosting important?  Research shows that high schoolers who participate in sports manage stress better, feel a stronger sense of community, and are at low risk of engaging in risky behaviors.  We want to make interscholastic athletics accessible to all students. 
Huron students and staff can register for a discounted rate. Must provide school ID at check-in!
