Thanks to everyone who helped make this event a success! We had over 350 registered and had great media coverage of the event!
In fact, the event was such a success that we started a Facebook Group for those interested in holding their own Gerrymander 5k event and a website page with resources to help with your own Gerrymander 5k.
And thanks to our sponsors and donors!
