Run with Allied Services and the Ryan’s Run team to Inspire Fitness, Challenge Disability and Change Lives. Each year, WNEP’s Ryan’s Run unites runners, sponsors, schools and community groups to help raise funds for Allied Services, a non-profit health system.

Over the last 10 years, the campaign, which is led by Newswatch 16’s Ryan Leckey, has raised more than $3.8 million and helped to change countless lives in Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania. Your generosity has enabled Allied Services to invest in advanced rehab technology with the goal of improving quality of life and recovery for children and adults with disabilities, life-changing injuries and chronic illness. With the funds raised in 2018, we invested in the latest exoskeleton from Indego. Watch below to witness a patient take their very first steps in the device.

By joining the Ryan’s Run team, you commit to raise a minimum of $5,000 in support of children and adults with disabilities at Allied Services. In exchange, we’ll provide you with support, guidance, camaraderie and the opportunity to change lives.
