2nd Annual 0.1K Run set for October 12
Join the fun at the second annual 0.1K Run to benefit Bundles of Joy on October 12. This unique event will be held on the 400 Block (rain location former JCPenney store at Wausau Center Mall), with registration beginning at 10:00 a.m. Races will start at 11:00 a.m., with two kids events, followed by a Costume Race–break out your best costume, a Rewind Race and a Slo-Mo Race. Awards will be presented at noon.
The first 70 adult runners to register will receive a free t-shirt. Register on-line at www.unitedwaymc.org. If you aren’t able to run, plan to attend and watch the fun. The event is sponsored by J&D Tube Benders and United Way of Marathon County.
All proceeds from this event will be used to purchase emergency diapers for families in crisis in our community. Last year, Bundles of Joy distributed 26,000 diapers to area families through local agencies. While resources exist to help families with food, there are few places to go if you are out of diapers and there’s several days until payday. Bundles of Joy fills that gap.
