Heels and Wheels Duathlon and 5K

It's that time of year again! Preparations are already under way for the 5th Annual Heels & Wheels Duathlon (5K Run/18K Bike/3K Run). Competitors can register as a general participant or help raise needed funds for a participating nonprofit.

"Heels & Wheels provides these partner organizations the structure of a large event without overwhelming their staff or their resources," says Chris Martin, President of KLF. "It allows them the opportunity to engage their constituents in fundraising while keeping their focus on their primary mission."

Since it's inception in 2011, the Heels & Wheels Duathlon has raised over $250,000 for area nonprofit organizations. This year, Heels & Wheels has experienced incredible growth with 26 area nonprofit organizations participating.
