On April 28, 2018 the Sheboygan Falls Kiwanis Club, the Greater Sheboygan Kiwanis Club, and the Sheboygan Falls YMCA will host their annual 5K Fun Run/Walk for Autism. The Youth Fun Run starts at 8:30am, and the main event starts at 9am at River Park in Sheboygan Falls.
“We’re looking forward to a great event for a great cause,” said Sheboygan Falls Kiwanis Club president Lynn Messer. “Last year, a new tradition started with the 501st Legion joining in the fun, and we’re happy to announce they’ll be back this year.” The 501st Legion, a.k.a. Vader’s Fist, is a group that dresses in film-quality costumes as Star Wars villains and show up to events to help promote worthwhile causes, and will take part in this event, congratulating racers at the end of the race.
There is still time to sign up for this event and support those in our community with Autism. Sponsored participants gather pledges that support the Wisconsin Upper Michigan Kiwanis Autism Project, whose goal is to provide iPads and funding for children with autism of families in need – and will specifically benefit children with autism in Sheboygan County. If you are interested, you can call 920-946-0652 or 920-467-2464 extension 202, or email [email protected] for more information about the event.
