Despite a hot and humid day, 184 registered runners and walkers, who ranged in age from 8 to 72, took part in the 3.1-mile event. This event was a charity run/walk that raised approximately $2,300, which was matched by Kishwaukee Community Hospital for a total donation of $4,600 to the DeKalb County American Red Cross.
Although the event was very competitive for a number of runners, it was also meant for each individual to test his or her personal fitness abilities. All runners received a gift bag and t-shirt prior to the run and were treated to post race food, water, stretching, massage and a number of raffle prizes.
“The local community has been very generous with financial sponsorships, product donations, time and effort that have allowed us to present age group awards, raffle prizes, and post race food and drink for all competitors and the approximately 50 volunteers,” said Chris Laurent, Unlimited Performance athletic trainer and race director. “Due to the strong support we get from both the local community and Kishwaukee Community Hospital we have been able to make this event a success each year, for this the staff at Unlimited Performance Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine would like to thank all those who helped,” Laurent said.
