The Beat goes on...
Ninth-annual 5K to benefit Grundy County charity
Runners and walkers will have a chance to support local Special Olympics athletes through an annual 5K held by the Morris Police Department and set for Saturday, Oct. 13.
According to Race Director Officer Steve Huettemann, the department's Run the Beat 5K was started in 2003 as a benefit for Special Olympics, but this year will be the first year that funds will go to a local charity — Special Connections of Grundy County.
He said that while some funding from Special Olympics helps Special Connections athletes, there are more needs that aren't covered fully, like travel to events.
