“This event started as a grassroots fundraiser for the Decatur Education Foundation and has grown into a community wide tradition with over 2,700 participants,” the Tour deCatur website says. “One registration fee allows participation in the 5k, 1 mile or Tot Trot. Funds raised by this event support the children and youth of Decatur by providing educational and enrichment opportunities.”
