Motor City Mile Team

Thank you!

Thank you so very much to everyone who came out to this year’s Motor City Mile event and helped support Wounded Warrior Project. Over 600 participants and 120 volunteers showed up to give back to this very worthy cause. Together we raised over $25,000! We applaud all of you for braving the cold and current!
