Celebrate the 4th of July by running the Cheyenne Firecracker 5K. Starting on the depot plaza, run on the greenway through Optimist Park. Then run past Needs Inc. and over the viaduct; all while supporting a local nonprofit. All proceeds will go toward supporting the mission and programs of Needs Inc., a nonprofit that feeds low-income households in Laramie County.
