WNEP’s Ryan’s Run 5K/All Abilities Walk Is This Saturday — Here’s How to Get Involved

An event many consider the "Super Bowl" of sorts for WNEP's Ryan's Run is now just days away.

It all surrounds the campaign's 5K/All Abilities Walk.

From kids to adults, many of the patients who receive therapy at Allied Services work hard all year-long to be able to take part in this event along Providence Road in Scranton.

The big community happening takes place Saturday, October 12, 2019, at PenFed Field at Veterans Memorial Stadium at Scranton High School.  

WNEP's Ryan's Run raises money to help change the lives of kids and adults with disabilities served by Allied Services.

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey spotlighted the event and also featured one of our campaign's corporate sponsors and volunteer groups, Baker Tilly.

They presented a check Wednesday morning worth $15,000 to Ryan's Run. Check out the reveal below.

At Saturday's event on October 12, area runners can test their 5K times, meet our Ryan's Run team, and the patients they are running for (AKA ambassadors) as part of November's TCS NYC Marathon.


Click here to sign up by October 9.  Early registration is $10 per person. After Oct. 9, the fee is $20.
