What Do the Funds from the Fun Run Support and How Can Travel Plazas Get Involved?
Funds will support the NATSO Foundation’s work. The NATSO Foundation is the research, education and public outreach subsidiary of NATSO Inc. The foundation is responsible for providing education and research for the truckstop and travel plaza industry.

Individuals or companies can also fundraise for the race! We hope all participants will sign up to fundraise for the NATSO Foundation. We will give a prize to the individual and the team that raises the most money for the NATSO Foundation. Click here to sign up to raise money for the NATSO Foundation’s Fun Run.
