"We are preparing for a new build which will begin later this year on Hill Lane in Edwardsville," Drew Westerhold, a spokesperson for the event, said. "Proceeds from this race will go towards building the foundation of a new home for a deserving family within the community. A tremendous amount of work goes into building a house and this is one of our fundraisers to get the process moving."

Westerhold said the race had "a wonderful turnout at the 5K in years past" and that the group is so thankful for the Edwardsville/Glen Carbon community’s generosity and support in support of the mission to provide a community where everyone has a decent place to live.
