Submitted @ Reader News

Lakeville’s “Run 2 Walk” took place Saturday, May 18 with a 10K, 5K, and 1K fun race.

The event is founded on the inspiring stories of Scott Proudfoot and Dillon Borowicz, both Lakeville graduates and former athletes who suffered spinal cord injuries leading to paralyzation.

According to the Lakeville Area Schools, “Run 2 Walk” will provide funds for restorative therapies, vocational opportunities, and in-home rehab equipment.”

Among the supporters at Saturday’s fundraiser was Mayor Matt Little, running the 10K.

“I’m overjoyed at the turnout and the support our community has shown for these two guys,” Little said. “I’m looking forward to next year’s event.”

Ann Proudfoot, Run 2 Walk’s main event organizer, joyously noted that the run “will continue to take place every year.”
