Thank you!

Everyone at the Black & Missing Foundation wishes to thank our media partners, sponsors, race participants and volunteers!  Your support allows us to provide a voice to the countless numbers of missing minorities. One hundred percent of the proceeds will allow us to bring awareness to all missing persons of color, fund personal safety programs and provide families with vital resources and tools. Thank you for giving hope to families of the missing.

We look forward to seeing each and every one of you on Saturday!
