Important Dates to Keep In Mind
Be sure to register your team by 9/28 in order to ensure that your team name will be listed on the back of the t-shirts and on our event banners and other event signage. You do NOT have to have your full team put together by this deadline - just know that we will not be able to guarantee t-shirt sizes for anyone added after 9/28. Of course, you can register a team after this date, we just won't be able to get your team name on the t-shirt or banners!

Complete the Circle has arrived! The event will start at 1pm with music by Cancer Can Rock and children's activities as well as some educational opportunities to learn more about hunger in Fairfax County. The activities will build up to creating the image, shooting the photo, and carrying the food to the truck. All festivities will be concluded by 2:30pm.
Whether you have a large group or a small one, be sure to bring a LARGE POSTER BOARD SIZED sign with your team name to the event so that your group can find you! Plus, it will make it easier for us to give your group a proper "shout out" during the event.
