Thanks to the more than 650 runners and walkers who participated in our 3rd annual Run, Walk & Roll 5K/1-mile event on Sunday, Oct. 25, in Geneva, we were able to raise over $51,000.
We can't begin to thank everyone who participated--from the 650+ runners/walkers to the 150+ volunteers, the Mill Creek neighbors who cheered from their driveways and street corners, the event sponsors, the Mane in Heaven miniature horses, and the many others who supported the event in their own way!
Runners, walkers and those in wheelchairs and other adaptive devices participated in either the 1-mile walk or the 5k run/walk which started at the Marklund Hyde Center, 1S450 Wyatt Drive, Geneva, and wound through the adjacent South Mill Creek neighborhood..
Net proceeds raised from entry fees and runners' individual fundraising efforts all help make everyday life possible for individuals with profound disabilities through the care and services provided at Marklund.
This year, Press Photography Network Inc. took photos of participants, the race and all of the festivities of the day. CLICK HERE TO VIEW PHOTOS IN THE PPN STORE. (Tab found at bottom of home page on their website.)
A special thank you to Fitch Healthcare who served as the event's Presenting Sponsor.
