The 2016 4-H 4 Mile Hustle Run & Walk and Kids' Fun Run will be held on Saturday, July 23rd at the Porter County Fair. Online sign-up is now live at http://www.thtiming.com/upcomingraces.html. Paper registration forms and sponsorship forms can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.
Why We Host the 4-H 4 Mile Hustle:
The 4-H 4 Mile Hustle is a fundraiser for the Porter County 4-H Junior Leaders. Thanks to funds raised by the 2015 race, our Junior Leaders were able to serve the community with multiple efforts including supporting families in need during the holidays, contributing to local food pantries, supporting pet rescue organizations, and more. Also, the race helps us grant scholarships to our most active graduating 4-H Junior Leaders.
Thanks to our 2016 Sponsors (as of 7/6/16):
