Events for this Race:
Competition and Fun that makes a difference!
What better way to kick off your Labor Day weekend than getting out for some family-friendly competition (for those who want to be competitive) in downtown Rockford.
We've combined with RAMP to offer a 3K Walk/Wheel, 5K Run, 1/2 Marathon, and a Kids Fun Run!
The four events all take place Saturday, September 5th in the morning, and all proceeds from these events will go directly to RAMP.
We say "makes a difference" because while we plan to put on an awesome event for our runners, wheelers, and walkers, we're also working to raise money for RAMP, a local non-profit organization that provides services and advocacy that assist individuals with disabilities to live as independently as possible.
RAMP empowers individuals with disabilities through services and advocacy to live an independent life. This is accomplished by partnering with them to make changes in their own lives, seek peer support and remove barriers. RAMP also advocates for the implementation of current laws, promotion of needed legislation and improvement of existing systems for individuals with disabilities while working to diminish negative attitudes that threaten to impede equal access. For more information about RAMP, call 815-968-7467 or visit www.rampcil.org.
