PERRY – The second-annual Run Through Time 5K fun run or walk is set to take place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 6 in conjunction with other Perry sesquicentennial celebration events. This run is presented by Perry Lutheran Homes and continues community-wide efforts to StepUp (Serve Together our Elderly in Perry) and take action to help our local elder citizens in need.


Local businesses, church groups, athletic groups, civic and social groups, families and friends are encouraged to form teams and join in the fun. The Run Through Time 5K is an untimed fun run, jog or walk for all ages and fitness abilities. Participants are encouraged to dress up in their favorite decade attire and enjoy music, memories and blasts from the past.


Run Through Time is an out-and-back style fun run on the Raccoon River Valley Trail that starts and finishes at the Caboose Park. Run check-in starts at 6 p.m., a pre-run Zumba warm-up lead by Deb Miller starts at 6:45 p.m., and the run start time is 7 p.m. Early bird discount and team pricing ends June 15.

All proceeds from this event will go to support both elder citizens living in Perry Lutheran Homes unable to afford care and those living in their homes in Dallas County.
