(From left) Gwen Watson, Morgan Donnelly, Mallie Gammon and Josh Pfeifer are coordinating a 5K run at Hamilton High School beginning at 9 a.m. July 21 to raise money for Make-A-Wish. Their goal is to raise money to help make 16-year-old Raphi’s wish of a train to ride in her backyard come true.

All participants will be able to enjoy food, music, water and raffle chances after the run, and the first 50 people who sign up for the race will receive a T-shirt.

Sign up for the race is at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b054caea828a3f58-running and those who want to donate to the cause without doing the run can go to Site.wish.org/goto/raphi.

Hamilton High School is located at W220 N6151 Town Line Rd., Sussex. Questions? Please contact the planners at runningforraphi@gmail.com.
