Thirty-thousand dollars is the goal the Illinois Valley chapter of American Red Cross wants to reach with its 21st annual Walk-Run-Bike fundraiser Sunday, Aug. 25 at Baker Lake in Peru.

Registration will begin at noon. Walkers, bikers and runners will leave the starting line at 1 p.m. All registered participants will receive T-shirts.

Money raised from the event will be used for local Red Cross activities including disaster services training and response, health and safety programs, and mobile meal deliveries. The Red Cross blood donation program also will benefit. 

“This event provides opportunities for all people in the Illinois Valley to get involved forming teams through their workplaces or through clubs and organizations or with friends and family,” said Sarah Stasik, manager of the Peru Red Cross office. “Walk Run Bike is a fun, family-oriented celebration that includes food, drinks, raffles, music and outdoor games that participants look forward to year after year.”

Stasik noted that the geographic area served by the Peru Red Cross office has expanded to the Ottawa and Streator areas following closure of Red Cross offices in those communities.
The Peru Walk Bike Run also will include a family bike safety rodeo on the east side of Baker Lake from noon to 2 p.m. The first 100 children attending will receive a free bicycle helmet and rodeo T-shirt. An adult must accompany each bike rodeo participant.
