September 29, 2019, 8:00 am - 11:00 am PDT
We proved in 2017 that strength is in numbers and that our community is more than Vegas Strong! It is Vegas Proud and Vegas Great!!
As we come together again for this annual event, we will commemorate the second anniversary of One October and remember those who lost their lives. We will run and walk in their memory and in honor of the survivors and the first responders. We will never forget!
We will continue to show our strength as our community runs and walks together, showing love and support for one another! Individual, teams or virtual.
100% of the net proceeds will be donated to ongoing 1 October victim funds and other Las Vegas community identified needs, including:
