Fourth and fifth graders at Countryside Elementary School have organized a community 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run this weekend and they’re asking us to lace up our running shoes to join them in raising money for Walk On Farm.

Walk On Farm is a horseback riding center on Cuba Road in Barrington devoted to making life easier for people with disabilities. Families who live many miles from Barrington drive their kids to Walk On weekly to experience the joy of horseback riding and the confidence and strength it builds in special needs riders like Danielle Sulaski from Aurora, Illinois.

Danielle is living with Cerebral Palsy after suffering a stroke at birth. Danielle’s grandfather, Bob Hunt, says she’s a different girl when she loses her walker and climbs on a horse.

“Her head lifts higher. Her posture improves. She’s in control, she’s smiling and she’s loving every minute of it.”

Stories like Danielle’s inspired the kids at Countryside’s to organize the 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run at the school this Saturday, May 19th. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. with race kickoff at 9:30. Food and refreshments will be available for a fee and games and music will add to the fun for spectators. The fee is $35 for an adult 5k participant, $20 for a youth participant and $15 for a 1 Mile Fun Run participant.  You’ll find Countryside Elementary at 205 W. County Line Road in Barrington and, for more information, visit CountrysidePTO.com.

All proceeds from Saturday’s Countryside Cares 5K event will go to Walk On Farm. Walk On is devoted to charitable and educational activities for people with physical, cognitive, social and emotional disabilities.
