What is Run for Riley?
Local running enthusiast and business owner Jim Berry was out running a few miles while nursing an injury. As he was feeling sorry for himself he was listening to the Majic Riley Radiothon. As he listened to the heartfelt stories of miracle after miracle, Jim pledged to do something to help the kids. Since he was a runner he decided to form an annual road race/walk for Riley.
