After monitoring the situation closely, Marklund’s upcoming Run, Walk & Roll 5K/1M event  
will be “modified” to meet the CDC guidelines advising against group gatherings/events of 50+ people.
The health and safety of our clients, participants, spectators, volunteers and vendors is our utmost priority.

Though the physical side of the event will be canceled, we will switch to a
VIRTUAL RUN – where participants can run, walk or roll in the comfort of
their own neighborhoods or treadmills on
Sunday, April 26th!

Thank you to all of our amazing registrants, sponsors, vendors, donors, and volunteers for embracing and
continuing to support Marklund and our new, 
VIRTUAL Run, Walk & Roll 5K/1M experience!

NOW is our time to come together, stay healthy, and continue to work hard to make everyday life possible
for individuals with profound disabilities.

History

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.
