Spirit of Benny 5K/10K in Placerville, March 16

8th Annual Walk/Run Supports Make-A-Wish

The vibrant spirit of a local boy lives on during the annual Spirit of Benny 5K/10K Fun Run and Walk. This year’s race, slated for Saturday, March 16, will start at 9 a.m. at Clay Street in downtown Placerville and continue down the scenic El Dorado Trail. In its eighth year, the event honors the brief, but influential life of Benny Penner who passed away in 2010 from Battens Disease at age five. Penner’s Parents, Brad and Nancy, created this event to raise funds for nonprofit agencies that serve seriously ill children and their families. This year’s primary beneficiary is the Northeastern California and Northern Nevada chapter of Make-A-Wish with proceeds being designated for El Dorado County residents. Register today at www.thespiritofbenny.org/register/. Technical t-shirts available for those registering by 2/15/19 by midnight MST. Registration closes on 3/13/19 at midnight MST. Medals and awards to top finishers!
