BELOIT—It was a record-breaking day on Saturday for Beloit Meals on Wheels (BMOW) as those with the non-profit were expecting to raise $32,000 from the new 10k Run and 5K Run/Walk known as the “Wheel Run for Meals.”
Sponsored by ABC Supply Co., Inc., KERRY, and Regal Rexnord, the event attracted 214 runners and lots of generous support. DJ Chuck Wilson was playing tunes such as “We are Family” as runners stretched and prepared for the timed race. With rain forecasted, organizers were thrilled there were no drops as of rain start time.
“If you don’t want to get wet, run fast,” said new Race Director Brian Enright to the eager runners.
The last 10 years the race—formerly known as Mushing for Meals—raised more than $160,000, and BMOW has served over 325,000 meals, announced BMOW Executive Director Ellen Wiegand.
