ABC Run/Walk #105
Feb 1 @ 8:30 am – 11:30 am

ABC#105, benefiting The Scott Early Learning Center, will be Sunday February 1 at 8:30 am (doors open 8:00).

The Scott Early Learning Center annually serves 200 McLean County children 6 weeks to 6 years of age. It serves families of all income levels, but currently 75% of all children qualify for some assistance. Many of the children have been born in high-risk environments and face significant barriers to healthy development and learning. It has been proven that there is a strong correlation between early education and future success in the classroom.

This event is free — donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. (Cash, or checks payable to The Children’s Foundation).
Distances: 4 miles = total distance from The Children’s Foundation to the triangle and back, or 8 miles = distance from the Children’s Foundation to GE Park and back.

Get ready for a PR! This 5k course is about as flat as you can get. The race starts and finishes on Lincoln Avenue and is basically an out and back course.

The race course was near the Schooners Eatery for many years, but was moved to its current location in 1994.

More details to come!
