Rain doesn’t stop Walk, Run, Bike event in Peru

Posted by wlpo on August 26, 2012

A steady light run didn’t stop the teams from taking a lap around Baker Lake for the Illinois Valley Chapter of the Red Cross.  The annual Walk, Run, Bike and Family Bike Rodeo went on as planned Sunday.

28 teams had planed to participate.  More than 30 children took part in the bike rodeo, receiving free T-shirts and bike helmets.  The first 100 kids will be given free helmets and T-shirts.

Executive Director Sarah Stasic says they were hoping to raise $32,000 and though the final figures aren’t available yet, she thought they had a lot of fundraising already collected.
