Ainsley’s Angels in Central Illinois will be the beneficiary of proceeds from the 2018 Passavant-Gatorade 5K and 10K, according to Kevin Eckhoff, race director.
Ainsley’s Angels provides specially-equipped racing wheelchairs to enable individuals with limited mobility the opportunity to experience the excitement of a road race. Ainsley’s Angels recruits runners to push the wheelchairs in local and area races and have participated in the Passavant-Gatorade 5K and 10K the past several years. The non-profit organization has a roster of 50 runners and more than 30 riders.
The 2018 Passavant-Gatorade 5K and 10K is Saturday, May 26. Registration for the 26th annual event opens in early March.
