Event to Take Place at Streets of St. Charles on Saturday, March 26th
Once again this year, runners from across the country will converge on Streets of St. Charles on Saturday, March 26th to participate in the annual Honduran Street Party Run. This 5k, 10k, and 1 mile fun run is expected to draw hundreds of participants, with proceeds benefiting Timmy’s Mountain, the charity founded by Robert Wamhoff and his wife Diane to feed and education children in a remote mountain village in Honduras. The 5k and 10k races start at 8:30 a.m., and the 1 mile fun run will follow. Fox 2’s Dan Gray will be on site to kick off the race.
Runners will receive a race shirt and fleece headband. Finishers of the 5k and 10k race will receive a custom medal, and awards will be given to age group and overall race winners. The running piñatas will make a repeat appearance for the “Beat the Pinata” competition in which each runner who beats the pinata’s time will qualify to win special prizes. Runners will have the opportunity to receive one free domestic draft beer from Bar Louie, or one standard cocktail from Prasino by redeeming the detachable ticket on their race bib.
As in the past, food and drink will be available from the various restaurants at Streets of St. Charles, and a runners’ village area will feature booths from a variety of local businesses.
“The Honduran Street Party Run has become a very popular and successful event in support of Timmy’s Mountain,” said Robert Wamhoff, co-founder of the organization. “Over the last couple of years, we’ve welcomed over 1,000 runners and spectators and have raised over $40,000 to help feed the children in Honduras. We’re looking forward to another great event this year.”
Timmy’s Mountain was founded by Robert and Diane Wamhoff in 2003. To date, the organization has maintained its goal of feeding the children five days per week, increased enrollment in school, and significantly improved grades and test scores. The first students from Timmy’s Mountain are scheduled to graduate college this coming school year. Timmy’s Mountain is named after Diane’s son who died in a car accident, and who Diane believes led her to the children on the mountain.
