Easter Seals event also to benefit Make-A-Wish

CLINTON — For the first time, Make-A-Wish will join Clinton’s 32nd annual Easter Seals Children’s Therapy Center run/walk.

“I just wanted to get more involved with Make-A-Wish,” Jean Roeder, race director, said. Proceeds from this year’s event will be split between Make-A-Wish, Easter Seals and the Children’s Therapy Center.

Roeder has been talking with Clinton County Make-A-Wish President Barb Jacobsen about working together. Jacobsen started the Clinton chapter of Make-A-Wish 22 years ago. She said the organization tried to host a walk, but had little success. Jacobsen said they just needed to partner with someone who knew what they were doing.

Registration on the day of the event will be from 8 to 8:45 a.m. March 24 at the Clinton Masonic Center, 416 S. First St. The children’s quarter mile run is set for 8:45 a.m. with the 4-mile run/walk starting at 9 a.m. on Riverview Drive.

Shirts will be available to the first 300 participants. A total of 200 free prizes will be given out after the race.

The entry fee for adults will be $17 before Sunday and $25 after that date. Children are $8 in advance and $10 afterward.

Applications are available at the YWCA. Individuals can register by calling Roeder at (815) 589-4945 or visiting getmeregistered.com.

Approximately 300 people participated in last year’s race, Roeder said.

She hopes this year’s turnout will be similar.

    "LOOK OUT!!"

  • Technology plays key part in battling police brutality (with VIDEO)

    Allegations of police brutality are nothing new -- as long as there has been law enforcement, citizens have registered claims that some officers cross the line. But in the last few years, the claims of excessive force are being corroborated with new technology from cell phone cameras, police dash-cams and surveillance videos.
