Peru Saturday, August 25th was an extremely hot and humid day. Race Director Scott Woodward and the Evans family were concerned when heavy rain hit Peru about 3:30 PM, but several minutes later the skies cleared, a rainbow appeared and by 5:15 PM the 17th Annual Run for Jon was underway. Surrounded by Forrence Orchard trees laden with bright red apples and seemingly sky-high corn stalks approximately 250 runners, walkers and small children participated in the 2007 event. By the end of the day approximately $4,000 had been raised to assist local families with a child in medical crisis. The Evans family and Race Director Woodward extended their sincere thanks to all the participants, helpers and local businesses who made the event a huge success.
