These Titans are determined to do everything they can to do their part...even if it means getting up at 4:45am to be prepared for the race start at 6:30am.   

Review the pictures below and click on the Titan you would like to encourage with your sponsorship!  You can also see the reasons each Titan has decided to run this race for Champions Place.  

Every dollar raised by the Titans will be matched (up to $100,000) by a friend of the Titans and Champions Place!
