Goodwill Races for Awareness

posted by Randy Bigley -

The annual wheelchair obstacle course was turned into a relay event  when the cold weather brought the fundraiser indoors on Saturday, May  20th.  Narrow hallways at Tri Rivers Career Center gave racers a different challenge.  

 

Eleven teams, some with members who  never sat in a wheelchair before, raced to see who would be first to complete three lengths of a course about 60 feet long. 

 

The  third place winners were from the team: Verne Hart Rocks sponsored by  Verne Hart Insurance. Second Place Winners were from the team: The Three  Meatballs sponsored by Marion Technical College and the first place  winners (once again) were from the team: Jordan’s Hotwheels sponsored by  Dr. Bipin Desai.  

 

The efforts of Goodwill, local  volunteers and sponsors helped to raise close to $17,000.00.  Funds were raised through racing, auction items, 50/50, Round Up at the stores and  a spaghetti dinner provided by the Warehouse. Proceeds benefit the  Goodwill programs and services in Marion, Delaware, Union, Crawford and Morrow County.
