Alex Valeno Exceptional Person’s 5K Walk/Run
Gwynedd Mercy University's Special Education Club is hosting the Sixth Annual Alex Valeno Exceptional Person’s 5K Walk/Run on Sunday, April 8, 2018.
Alex Valeno was an active club member and co-president of the club until January 2013, when she suddenly passed away due to congenital heart disease. In order to honor her, the club has started The Alex Valeno Special Education Award and has designated the 5K in her name. All money raised during this event gets donated to support local charities.
The funds raised from the Walk/Run will be used to support charities such as Special People in the Northeast (SPIN) and The Autism Institute of Gwynedd Mercy University. The Special Education Club is dedicated to reaching the goal of $10,000 for the 2017-2018 academic year.
With registration, you will receive a t-shirt. Please note that kids shirts will only be guaranteed if registered before 3/26/2018. Strollers for runners are discouraged and dogs are prohibited from being on the track and turf field but are welcomed on the perimeter!
