Portage County Parent Council
Presents the Third Annual
5k Race and 1 Mile Fun Run, Walk or Roll
Sunday, June 03, 2018 5k 8 am - Fun Run 9 am

The Parent Council has been an advocate for the needs of those with developmental disabilities and their families for over 50 years.
We are working toward establishing a facility that would provide a full size basketball court, a refreshment option and wheelchair accessibility. The facility will be a place for Special Olympic, community, and other social events and gatherings.
Similarly, we are also promoting events that will be enjoyable for the entire community. This race is designed to embrace everyone with all abilities. It is within the NEOMED Campus to provide safety for runners, walkers, wheelchairs, strollers and those with other challenges.
