NEW THIS YEAR!!  Joy In The Cause wants to support your cause and help others learn more about it.

Organizations can register (for free) to set up a pop-up tent in our first-ever “Village of Causes” where groups from all over the area are invited to hand out brochures, giveaways, prizes — let creativity be your guide — in an effort to share your mission with our runners and fans.

LeAnne Taylor from KOTV Six in the Morning is once again our FUN emcee for the evening!  Mavis Pearl her sidekick will be joining in the fun as well!

At Joy In The Cause, your cause matters!
