Congratulations to all participants for their hard work, dedication and fun having that sums up Over the Hump. Thank you for sharing your family and making us part of yours this summer.
Sponsors, friends, and celebrations marked the finale Tuesday June 21. In a nutshell, summer is just getting started and many of us have already lived our highlights at Over the Hump.

We had tons of epic engagement from sponsors and exhibitors this year year. And a great bunch of mojo as we celebrated the podium finishers.
