.1K Slow Motion charity run raises money for families in need

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW) — Dozens of people made their way to downtown Wausau on Saturday for the first .1K Slow Motion run for charity.

The race stretched from one end of the 400 block to the other.

They took things slow, all for a good cause.

Money raised from the run goes to United Way and their Bundles of Joy program. The program delivers diapers, wipes and infant formula to families in emergency situations.

“That particular program is just really good because if you’re hungry you can go to a food pantry and if you’re homeless you can go to a homeless shelter but, if you’re a family with a baby, in need of diapers, wipes and formula there’s not too many great options for those families to go to, so that’s where the Bundles of Joy program comes in,” Troy Goldschmidt, the volunteer chairperson of the run, said.

Organizers said it’s the first of its kind in the area and something they hope to continue.

About 60 people pre-registered for the event.
