Go for Good 2024 will benefit Hays County Composite Mountain Biking Team! November through May, Hays CISD and homeschooled high school and middle school students compete as a team in 6 races in various Texas locations against over 40 other teams.  Team members bring their own bikes or borrow from a small pool of bikes available to get a new team member started. This team has won awards multiple times in the past year for performance but also for sportsmanship.  We are proud to help raise some funds the team will use for safety equipment and to possibly aid in maintaining their pool of bikes

For the Love of Go is excited to share more about this rich resource and we hope you will join us! 


Inflatable Costume Scramble!  This will be a scramble through the parking lot, about a half K, with participants dressed in their own inflatable costumes! Get your camera ready, this is sure to be a hoot!
