29th Goodwill Whee-a-Thon

The 29th annual Goodwill Wheel-a-Thon event took place on Saturday, May 18 at Tri- Rivers Career Center in Marion.

Nine teams, some with members who never sat in a wheelchair before, raced to see who would be first to complete three lengths of a course about 60 feet long.

Third place winners were from the team:
Marion Kiwanis sponsored by Marion Noon Kiwanis

Second place winners were from the team:
Team Clarity sponsored by Clarity Technology Solutions

and the first place winners (once again) were from the team:
Jordanís Hotwheels sponsored by Dr. Bipin Desai

The efforts of Goodwill, local volunteers and sponsors helped to raise over $23,000.00. Funds were raised through sponsorships, racing, auction items, 50/50, Round Up at the Goodwill retail stores and a spaghetti dinner provided by the Warehouse. Proceeds benefit Goodwill programs and services that improve lives and empower the communities we serve.
