The mission of AFC is to protect Tarrant County children from child abuse through teamed investigations, healing services and community education. The goal of AFC is to minimize the trauma of the abuse so that children and families can begin to heal. The goal of this event is to raise awareness and provide financial support to this great organization. The course is six miles long through the streets and trail systems (a mountain bike is recommended) of Keller. The citizen race is the same course as the police course. The citizen race starts at 2:15pm and the police race begins at 3:15pm. Police officers riding in the race will be in full uniform. We just added a new event this year, the Mayor's Race.
