On August 18, 2018 volunteers from the Tri-Lakes Community Center hosted a family-friendly 5K Fun Run around beautiful Lake Dowling. The morning’s activity was a kick off to the afternoon Corn Roast event that members of the Tri-Lakes Community participate in on an annual basis. Proceeds from both the fun run and the 50/50 fundraiser at the corn roast are donated to the Challenge Center. Last year, we were able to purchase a snow plow attachment for use throughout the CCI organization, including our 10 Residential homes in Superior, WI. The above pictured smiling faces are some of the participants and volunteers made the morning a very enjoyable experience. All race finishers received a pint of beautiful Bay Produce cherry tomatoes and a finisher’s ribbon.
