Sixth Annual Downtown Willoughby 5k

Sun September 16, 2018 Willoughby, OH US 44094 Directions
Make-A-Wish Fundraiser

The Downtown Willoughby 5k brings a great race experience together with a fantastic charity, the Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

In the past five years, the Downtown Willoughby 5k has donated $116,000 to Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Your efforts and generosity helped us sponsor numerous wishes to children in our area.

Fundraising isn't always an easy task, but there's huge potential in leveraging a large group of supportive runners. This year, we'll make a minimum of a $21,000 donation to Make-A-Wish through the following:

  • $60 (100%) of every Wish Runner's registration fee x 200 Wish Runners = $12,000
  • $5 (17%) of every standard registration fee x 1,800 Wish Runners = $9,000

A sold out race in 2018 will bring our 6-year total to $137,000 donated!

In addition to our donation through registrations, we are also raising funds from non-participants to increase our total donation.

For each $10 you donate, you will receive a raffle ticket for great prizes, with the winners announced the week after this year's race.  You do not need to be present to win.  If you are donating on behalf of a participant's fundraising page, your supported participant will also receive a raffle ticket entry for each $50 they raise.  

Thanks so much for your generosity and support!
