The route begins at 7th and Wabash, continues to the Indiana State University track at 9th and Spruce, and ends at 7th and Wabash. Registration is free and there will be free t-shirts, music, food, and drinks provided for all who participate. All members of the community are invited.

The Terre Haute Tomorrow initiative is a vision for growth and prosperity for the community. The long range plan for Terre Haute Tomorrow is to set goals in order to improve the city over the next ten years. This 10-year comprehensive community plan was crafted from five teams, each tackling one aspect of the community. The teams include quality of life, economic development, workforce readiness, leadership development, and infrastructure.

Norm Lowery is the chair of the quality of life/community image team. The goal areas addressed include aesthetics, community appearance, improving community image, helping curb drug abuse while improving the overall health of the community and the inclusion of minorities in the main fabric of community life.

Mr. Lowery appointed Melvin L. Burks, CEO, Hamilton Center Inc. to chair the subcommittee of diversity/socioeconomics. This committee meets regularly to discuss topics involving inclusion and awareness of diversity efforts.
