Earlier this summer I decided to take my two boys to what’s billed as the 2015 Great Race. It’s a race that tracks along the original Route 66 road and goes from Kirkwood, Missouri to Santa Monica, California.
Well, just the other night as I was talking to them about it, I discovered that it’s also raising money for autism. So if anyone is interested in tracking the race or lives in one of the towns in which their stopping, they have a website. Also, here’s a list of the cities they’re planning to stop in along the way.;
START: Kirkwood, Mo. (St. Louis area)
