The 15th Annual Don Reilly Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run is set for Saturday, October 8th at the Family Center Ice Arean in Beaver Dam. This year the event proceeds benefit the Beaver Dam Family Center’s Zamboni fund.
“The Zamboni that we have has done a lot of great work over the years but it’s well past its expected life. As things get older you spend more money to keep it working as opposed to getting something newer.” Event spokesperson Dan Baulch told 1430 ESPN. “Everyone that’s been around the program whether its hockey or ice skating over the years can identify the need for the Zamboni, so we know a lot of people will come rally around this event to make this happen.”
The 10K race will run down Prospect Road with a turn onto Lake Hills Drive. The 5K run heads down Prospect and back. There is also a shorter kids run. All the events start and finish at the Beaver Dam Family Center located at 609 Gould Street in Beaver Dam.
