Run for the Village 5K Run/Walk set for July 21 PDF Print E-mail

It’s one thing to be passionate about a favorite hobby or a skill that you enjoy using, but quite another to take that passion and channel it into some worthwhile cause that helps others. This is exactly what Rachel Dalton did when she helped to establish Run for the Village, a 5K race that raises money and awareness for the plight of orphans in Africa.
The 4th annual Run for the Village 5K Run/Walk is ready to kick off at 8am on Saturday, July 21, from Eastern High School in Pekin. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to benefit Eden Children’s Village, a safe haven for at-risk kids, including those suffering from the continent’s AIDS epidemic.
