The event will consist of multiple races inside an angled wooden track with six mice in each race. Additionally, other side games and a silent auction will be held.

“This event was extremely popular last year and we are excited to do it again,” said SFCC Softball Head Coach Michele Rupard. “We are also accepting donations for our silent auction and appreciate all of the community’s support.”
