GALENA–The Kiwanis Club of Galena’s Run for the Parks event, planned for Saturday, May 16, is cancelled due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation.
Race director Susan Sostak said, “Given the current circumstances with the ongoing, daily changes in the extent and spread of the Coronavirus, we are cancelling this race out of an abundance of caution to protect the health of our race participants. We hope you understand the necessity of this decision.”
The run raises funds for park equipment in Galena. The Kiwanis Club plans on refurbishing equipment at the Tot Lot on Ridge Street.
Race participants who already signed up for this year’s run will receive a special promotional code for next year’s run.
“At this time, we intend to hold the race in May on the same weekend in 2021,” said Sostak.
