Runs will raise money help honor 9-11

Posted by wlpo on August 30, 2016

There are many ways to remember and memorialize the tragic events of 9-11. In the Illinois Valley a popular observance is to have a run.

The Ottawa Firefighters are putting together a 5K Run/Walk on September 11th called “Run to Remember.” The race will start at the Ottawa Boat Club and raise money for a local family and youth sports. Contact the fire department to sign up.

The same day there is a 5K/10K at Illini State Park in Marseilles called the “Illinois Fallen Soldier Memorial Fun Run or Walk.” Proceeds will build an addition to an existing memorial at the state park listing every soldier killed in a Middle East conflict. You can get a sign up form at Handy Foods, the Ottawa Y, CP’s Ice Cream or at the Illini State Park office.
