For all Get Your Rear in Gear® and Tour de Tush® events in 2017, teams and individual participants are invited to add a personalized sign to the Blue Mile. This section of the run/walk course or bike route will honor those diagnosed with any cancer, remember loved ones, and celebrate the important people in their lives. After the event, be sure to take your sign home with you!

The easiest way to secure a sign in the Blue Mile is to order when you register. Blue Mile signs can also be ordered through the button at the top of each event page at any other time. Orders must be placed 10 days before the scheduled event.  After this time the order button will be disabled and additional orders will not be processed.
