Ryan’s Run, an awareness and fundraising campaign led by WNEP TV’s Ryan Leckey and Allied Services, got its start in 2010. That first year, Ryan and 4 area athletes completed the New York City marathon, raising more than $100,000 for children and adults with disabilities.
Fast forward four years, and 100 runners, 12 corporate sponsors, 15 schools and countless donors from Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania have helped to raise more than $900,000.
Thanks to Ryan’s Run, Allied Services has been able to invest in the people, and technology that are changing the lives of people in our area. From devices that help children to communicate, to therapeutic music programs, to rehab technology helping people to walk again, your contributions have touched thousands of lives.
In 2013, the Ryan’s Run campaign raised more than $290,000 for children and adults with disabilities. Schools and colleges throughout Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania played an important role in our success and we want to say a big THANK YOU!
This year, Ryan wants YOU to join him on Team Leckey by helping raise money for children and adults with disabilities served by Allied Services. He’s issuing your school a challenge – raise the most money for Ryan’s Run and he’ll broadcast LIVE from your school!!
You can be as creative as you want with your fundraising – host a sponsored mini-olympics or carnival, have a dress-down day or sporting event.
