Photos by TOM SCOTT

It was another phenomenal year for Mitchell’s Run thru Rockford held Saturday, Aug. 20. More than an amazing fundraiser in the fight to find a cure for Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy, the event is in honor of Mitchell Peterson and other boys with Duchennes and a way to raise awareness of the need to find a cure.

Over $61,000 was raised for Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy. Top racers in the 5K walk/run were Alex Wilson with a time of 15:14 in the men’s division, and in women’s Jennifer Adams finished at 17:31. Close behind in the men’s division were Drake Veitenheimer (15:20), Spencer Gerber (15:33), Drew Woznick (15:36), and Josh Miller (15:43). In the women’s division were Devon John (18:17), Taylor Manett (18:24), Kaitlin Diemer (18:41), and Holliann Willekes (19:31).

Mitchell Peterson is the race’s namesake.

All ages participate in Mitchell’s Run. The event includes awards, music and an auction.
