MiteY Race 2020

Virtual MiteY Race
Saturday, June 27, 2020
3-5 PM

Presented in conjunction with the
2020 Joint Western and Mountain Districts Annual Meeting
as a fundraiser for the Richard T. Romer Student Endowment Fund

Since the Annual Meeting is now a virtual meeting, we’ve also adapted our traditional MiteY Race event to a virtual event.  We recently tested this approach with our MiteY Race Stay Home Edition and it worked wonderfully for teams that couldn’t all be in the same place.  Our pit stops are designed to be completed in a home or office environment.  So have fun while supporting student initiatives!
