The 5K Run, Walk & Roll has taken place at the Marklund Hyde Center in Geneva over the past five years, raising $255,000 for children and adults with developmental disabilities. Net proceeds raised from entry fees and runners’ fundraising efforts will help make everyday life possible for individuals with profound disabilities through the care and services provided at Marklund.
