Goodwill of Central Illinois will hold a Patriots Weekend in September of 2015. Two events will be dedicated to honoring and serving our veterans.
Goodwill will hold its second annual Reception of Honor at Goodwill Commons on Friday, September 11. The event will honor the memory of General Wayne A. Downing and recognize local military personnel, veterans, family members and supporting organizations.
On Saturday, September 12, Goodwill’s Forward March & Run will be held on the Peoria Riverfront. The event gives people of all fitness levels a chance to run or walk alongside
veterans, active military members and their families. The race begins at the Gateway Building and features a unique opening ceremony and post race celebration. Participants can choose from a two-mile march, a four-mile run or an eight-mile run.
