Red Run Against Child Sex Brings Many To First Algonquin Race
Organizer Kristen Guerrieri said that was because, "it happens in the suburbs, too. Most people don't know it but in the suburbs girls are being sold online." Guerrieri said funds raised Saturday will support the Salvation Army's PROMISE initiative (Partnership to Rescue our Minors from Sexual Exploitation) and Love 146 shelter for exploited children.
In Saturday's race the top finisher by a three-minute maragin was was Matt Field from Wheaton who clocked 16:13.4. Jeremy and Jason Bauer from Elgin finished second and third. The first local runner over the line was Algonquin's Mark Waterstone in ninth place.
