The race is named for George Voss, a resident of Water’s Edge Long-Term Care Center in Hayward. He is the inspiration behind the event, which raises money to buy goats, chickens, seed and a well for grandmothers in Zambia, Africa, who are raising their grandchildren (most of them orphaned because of AIDS).
