INTRODUCTIONEver wear shoulder pads, leg warmers, or banging acid wash jeans? Did you love the taste of Crystal Pepsi and the sounds of a good mix tape? Step away from your Pac-Man and Galaga machines and take part in the Retro Run! I pity the fool that does not dress 80s appropriate. Best male and female costumes, as judged the Cobra Kai dojo, will go home with a cruiser bike! Sweep the leg!

Unopened sample size toiletries (soap, toothpaste, shampoo, lotion, sun block, etc.)
Office supplies (paper, pens, etc.)
