Run, Walk & Roll 5k

Are you ready to RUN, WALK & ROLL?   The 4th Annual Run, Walk & Roll for Marklund 5K/1-mile event will be held Sunday, Oct. 23, at Marklund in Geneva.5KGreyImage web



We are thrilled to report that the Run, Walk & Roll has raised more than $129,000 for children and adults with developmental disabilities. Now in its 4th year, the Run, Walk & Roll welcomes runners, walkers and those in wheelchairs and other adaptive devices to participate in either the 1-mile walk or the 5K run/walk, both of which start at the Marklund Hyde Center, 1S450 Wyatt Drive, Geneva, and wind through the adjacent South Mill Creek neighborhood. Many of our neighbors cheer on the participants from their homes, drive-ways and street corners, sending out a lot of positive energy.

At the end of the race, everyone is invited to join in the Party in the Park and enjoy a great variety of hot and cold foods and beverages, and entertainment.
