Run, Walk & Roll Success!
Thank you to all those who took part in this morning's Run, Walk & Roll 5K/1 Mile event! Luckily, the rain held off until most participants finished. Since the Award Ceremony was cancelled, we will coordinate distribution of the awards this week!
Special thanks to this year's Presenting Sponsor: Plante Moran!

The Run, Walk & Roll has raised more than $190,000 for children and adults with developmental disabilities. The Run, Walk & Roll always 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 in 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 joined in the Party in the Park and enjoyed a great variety of hot and cold foods and beverages..
Volunteers helped make this event a success. Thanks to the adults, teens and children who got up early and gave their time and efforts to the event.
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.
