With many live races becoming virtual, including marathons, Dawnn Bonnema wanted to provide an opportunity to run with others that are in the same boat as her.
With help from the local communities, Bonnema is hosting a safe run. The race is limited to 75 runners as of 8/13/2020 due to Porter County mandate.
There are no registration fees for this event. However, Bonnema is asking for donations to help cover the fees being charged by the Portage Park Department.
At Countryside park, there will be a Veteran's mile. Bonnema is currently looking for veterans to line up along the path and cheer the runners on, thanking them, for their service.
Bonnema was supposed to run my first marathon with the Marines at the Marine Corps Marathon in VA. However, this event became virtual. A virtual run means, you run it locally and report your results online.
