The third annual Infinity Run & Family Event is scheduled for Saturday, April 27 at Chana Education Center in Chana. Activities kick off at 3 p.m.
The yearly event is held in memory of Maggie (Rosko) Meyer and her son Amos, of Byron, who tragically died at their home in October of 2016.
A nonprofit organization, The Maggie & Amos Foundation, has since been started by family and friends of the two and hosts the event.
The event features a USTAF certified, chip-timed 5k run, as well as a one-mile fun run/walk.
Other activities include a free children’s fun zone with games, prizes, face painting, and bounce houses.
The Mt. Morris Moose Lodge will serve food and drinks in its mobile food truck.
A 50/50 raffle, as well as a silent auction featuring donations from many area business, organizations, and individuals, will run throughout the event.
Activities will conclude with the medals ceremony at the end of the 5k race.
Following the event is an “After Party” held at Chana Tap, which will feature live music by the Cal Stage Band.
The proceeds from this event are used to support local educational and children’s programming and activities.
In the past two years, more than $16,000 has been donated back to area school teachers in classroom grants, to support materials for the Mt. Morris Public Library’s children’s section, and in scholarships for college students entering the field of special education.
