Run2Walk is a 1k, 5k, 10k fun run/walk/roll originally designed to raise funds for two young Lakeville High School graduates, Scott Proudfoot, class of 2006 and Dillon Borowicz, class of 2013. Both of these athletes are paralyzed from their chest down, as a result of diving accidents.
This year Run2Walk has joined with Get Up Stand Up to Cure Paralysis Foundation (GUSU www.gusu2cure.org) in organizing the run. This fundraising event will assist GUSU and their mission to promote accessible fitness and expedite curative therapies to restore function for those with paralysis resulting from spinal cord injury (SCI).
This year, the Fire Truck Parade and the Community Parade are being combined.
The parade will kick off promptly at 11am. The viewing route will be the same. Please note that the Fire Truck Parade will start at 134th & Civic Center Drive and we will join in after the Community Parade units pass by Parkwood & 130th and then follow them on to the Grounds.
