Running Preview: Walk for Wishes 2014 in Salem


Be a hero this year by throwing away all hopes of a PR and instead made a bigger goal support the 7th Annual Walk for Wishes on Saturday, April 26, 2014 in Salem. This 5k walk (or run) begins and ends at the outdoor amphitheater at Riverfront Park.

This year, the event is encouraging superhero costumes to help honor and support local kids. Here is one cool video from Make a Wish Oregon that fits in nicely with our running community (the cool program in this video can be found here):

There will be prizes  awarded to the top fundraising team, top fundraising individual and top fundraising wish kid. Participants will enjoy snacks and ice cream, as well as after-run activities for the whole family. Follow the event on Facebook.
