Run, Walk & Roll History

Marklund’s Run, Walk & Roll was established in 2013 as a fun and community friendly way to raise awareness and support for Marklund’s programs and services.  From the initial Run, Walk & Roll logo designed by Geneva High School students, to the enormous support from our local businesses, neighbors and friends, this event continues to surpass all expectations.


Since its inception, the Run, Walk & Roll Series has raised over $700,000 in net proceeds to support the children and adults with developmental disabilities being cared for at Marklund.
