Goodwill Races for Awareness

Group 1

The annual wheelchair obstacle course was turned into a relay event when the rain brought the fundraiser indoors on Saturday, May 21st. Narrow hallways at Tri Rivers Career Center gave racers a different challenge this year.

Nine teams, some with members who never sat in a wheelchair before, raced to see who would be first to compete three lengths of a course about 60 feet long.Winners 1

It all came down to the three final teams, the Blue Thundercats, Peacocks and Jordan’s Hot Wheels. Jordan’s Hot Wheels took the win for the ninth year in a row! Members of the Jordan’s Hot Wheels team included: Jordan Freeman, Michael Freeman and Matthew Wollett.

The efforts of Goodwill, local volunteers and sponsors helped to raise close to $18,000.00. Funds were raised through racing, auction items, 50/50, quilt raffle, spaghetti dinner provided by the Warehouse and rounding up at our retail stores. Proceeds benefit  the Goodwill programs and services in Marion, Delaware, Union, Crawford and Morrow County.
