LAST YEAR'S EVENT:
Hosted by Maranda of WOOD-TV8!
A huge thanks goes out to the 200 participants, families, sponsors, staff and volunteers who helped to make our 3rd Annual 5K event a success!
The event, held at Wedgwood's campus, raised nearly $35,000 for Wedgwood's 5 Transforming Services, which include: Chaplaincy/Young Life, Wellness, Employment Training, Educational Support Services, and Prevention. New events like the Tot Trot and Children's Races gave little ones a fun way to participate and Maranda of WOOD-TV8 provided an energetic atmosphere as our event emcee.
We appreciate your support of this event and look forward to another successful 5K next year!
