The next ABC Run/Walk (Adventure Benefiting Children #108) will be Sunday, April 19 at/for The Baby Fold starting at 8:00 a.m. (doors open at 7:30 a.m. to sign in).
The Baby Fold is located at 108 E. Willow in Normal.
April is Child Abuse Prevention month, so let’s “go the extra mile to help prevent child abuse” by running to the new end of the trail & back (the trail was extended to ½ mile past Kerrick elevator).
Suggested routes (going North on Const. Trail & back) include:
3 miles (to near where the trail turns at I55 & back), 7 miles (to the new end of the trail & back), 9 miles (beyond end of the trail & back).
This could be a great last training run for the Champaign half-marathon or marathon.
Water & Gatorade will be stored near the Kerrick elevator.
Back at The Baby Fold will be a wealth of food and drinks, including Meg’s coffee cake, Jenny Keen’s oatmeal, and much more. Bring something to share if you wish.
As always, ABC runs are free. Free-will contributions of any amount (cash or checks payable to The Baby Fold) are greatly appreciated.
100% of all donations go to The Baby Fold (because we bring our own food and have no awards, timing services, port-a-johns, or t-shirts to pay for).
p.s. Thanks a million to the 47 participants at ABC#107, who took steps to prevent child abuse by donating a wonderful total of $3,205 to the McLean County Protection Network.
