One of South Sound’s treasures is First Night Tacoma, an inclusive and family-friendly celebration of New Year’s Eve that fills downtown with music, dance, art and play. We at South Sound Together are excited that this year, we’ll be a part of this grand gala. We’re sponsoring the Iditarace, a race for people that’s inspired by the Iditarod, the famed sled-dog race. The race will feature teams of 4 to 8 humans powering sleds they’ve designed on a 400-yard race up St. Helen’s Avenue. The winners will get $3,000 (courtesy of South Sound Together) to donate to a local charitable nonprofit organization.

Sign up your Iditarace team now, or find out more on the First Night website. at
