Seventh Annual Downtown Willoughby 5k

Sun September 15, 2019 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 six years, the Downtown Willoughby 5k has donated $138,000 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

Our goal is to exceed $150,000 for our total donation.

Raffle tickets are $10 each and can be purchased separately from a race registration or during registration.  100% of raffle ticket sales is donated to Make-A-Wish.  Past raffle items have included custom Yeti tumblers, camping equipment, booze buckets, Yeti coolers and more.  Stay tuned for this year's raffle list.

Thanks so much for your generosity and support!
