Charity is alive and well and living in Vegas. If you want to help others and enjoy the process, please feel free to run, walk, golf or imbibe to benefit those in the community who need help. Whether you can afford to help in a big way – with or without sponsorship – or can participate in a big-ticket event, you can choose your charity and know you are helping those in need.
