Nonprofit organizations and community groups will raise awareness and funds at Dover International Speedway this fall as the Monster Mile will host the eighth annual Monster Miles for a Cause on Oct. 21, presented by Bayhealth.

Regular meetings are coordinated where groups can work together to collaborate on event details.

“We are happy to be able to help these worthwhile organizations by hosting their events at the track on this special day in October,” said Mike Tatoian, president and CEO of Dover International Speedway. “In fact, we’d love to have more groups join us that day. Additional groups add to the fun for everyone, and the events give fans the chance to have some fun exploring the track on a non-race weekend.”

Among the activities currently scheduled are a full and half-marathon, a 5K and a one-mile fun walk benefiting area causes. The events include the Monster Mash Full and Half-Marathon, beginning at 7 a.m.,; the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation 5k beginning at 9 a.m.,; and the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition eighth annual One-Mile Fun Walk beginning at 10 a.m.,

Bayhealth, in its first year as a presenting sponsor, will have an informational display from 8 a.m. to noon. Grotto Pizza will sell food, and NKS Distributors will have beer available for purchase. The Harris School of Business and Hollingsworth Riddleberger Insurance will also have displays, with more to come.
