Area 5k raised $14 G during Riverfest

Posted by wlpo on August 14, 2016

What’s become a Riverfest tradition in Ottawa is also a hit.  Tracy Beattie is with the Starved Rock Regional Center for Therapy and Child Development.  Beattie reports their 5K Run/Walk from last weekend raised over $14,000 – a record for SRRC.  100% of all money raised at the event remains in Ottawa, helping local children to achieve their maximum potential.

Among those running was Bob Olsen, who has raised significant donations each year for the Center.  He crossed the finish line despite painful physical challenges due to being in a fire several years ago. The annual 5K event also includes a Kid’s run.
