Marriage Pit Stop

  • Friday, March 1 Register by Wednesday, February 28
  • 6:15pm – 8:30pm
  • $40

Some of the most crucial parts of a race happen not on the track, but during the pit stops. In the pit, it’s time to take a breath, refuel, and make repairs and adjustments so that the vehicle runs its best when it gets back on track. We believe the same of marriage, a long-term race—if you don’t stop to work on things every once in a while, you may find yourself burning out. No matter how long you’ve been married, we want to invite you to an evening in the pit this March. You’ll be cheered on and given the tools you need to work together, build your own supportive "pit crew," and continue your race.
