To ensure the safety of all of our Wheel-A-Thon and 5K participants, we will be holding the event virtually this year with a celebration dinner at Logan’s on July 30th! Teams or individuals will still be asked to register and raise funds as usual. Please register by July 15th to be guaranteed a t-shirt. We will need anyone who wants to be considered for awards/prizes to submit their funds by July 20th so we can ensure we have prizes, t-shirts and meal counts for the July 30th celebration.
Post all of your route photos and 5K runner times here: https://www.facebook.com/events/726372564861042/
RAMP will continue to follow the State of Illinois phase restrictions as we move toward the event date. We will have our dinner and hand out awards on the evening of July 30th, in some capacity, following phase guidelines. Please stay in touch with us via email and our RAMP Facebook Page for updates on the event, how to share your virtual route pictures, how to submit 5K runners times and what the July 30th dinner celebration will look like. Thank you for your patience and understanding during these uncertain times. We appreciate your continued support of RAMP and our mission to continue to work with individuals with disabilities to live, work and play in our community!
The Wheel-A-Thon & 5K, is a signature family-friendly RAMP event, is similar to a walk-a-thon only participants with and without disabilities will navigate a two-mile route in a their own wheelchair or one provided by RAMP.
