by Merlin Anderson (

ABC Run/Walk #100, to benefit Seedling Theatre will be on Sunday, August 10 at 7:30 a.m. (doors open at 7:00 a.m.). 
Special early-bird start at 6:30 – meet at the Tipton parking lot along GE road to run as many miles as you can before signing in for the official 7:30 start.

Laurel and Larry Schumacher will host this event at their home, located at 2004 Ebo Lane in Tipton Trails, Bloomington.
(from Veterans Parkway, go east on GE Road, park in the Tipton Trails lot, walk to the Schumacher back yard (look for the balloons on the backyard fence near the NE corner of the lake).

Come celebrate Adventure Benefiting Children #100!  We’d love to have at least 100 participants at the 100th ABC event!

T-shirts:   We will have 100 shirts to commemorate the 100th event!  If you want a commemorative 100th ABC shirt, donate $20 or more (if ordered in advance) or donate $25 or more on the day of the run.  Just email Merlin Anderson and specify the size you want.  We have men’s and women’s cut shirts.  They are the same brand as the Park2Parkshirts.
I will send an email when the shirts are available.  You can make your donation when you pick up your shirt(s).  100% of all donations go to Seedling Theatre!

As always, ABC runs are free, donations of any amount are greatly appreciated.

Seedling Theatre is a wonderful theatrical program for children and young adults with disabilities, as well as their able bodied peers.
