(Bring a HAT!) Fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Assoc. Donations will be made based on how many Deerflies you capture on your Tred-Not Deerfly Patch! (Bring a HAT!) The Deerfly Stomp is an event that I created back in 2007 as a way to encourage people to run / walk in Grand Mere during the deerfly “season” of mid-June to mid-Sept. With Tred-Not Deerfly Patches, it can be done! Without getting bit! Oh, yeh…Bring a HAT! Because that’s wHAT you put the Tred-Not Deerfly Patch on. You’ll want a ballcap or running HAT. Thanks! P.S. Yes, I’m serious. Run through the deerfly infested woods…catch deerflies…help stomp out Alzheimer’s!!!
