This is a fundraiser for the Hegg Foundation. If the Rock River Run registers at least 157 participants, we can purchase a $5,488.48 Laxco microscope! This microscope will replace an older microscope in the Hegg Laboratory and features new technology which will allow multiple techs, physicians, and students to view samples at once on a screen, enhancing patient care and diagnosis accuracy through multi-review.

The online registration period is now closed. You can still register on the morning of the race between 7:00 a.m. - 7:45 a.m., for a fee of $45. Checks may be written to Hegg Foundation. Thank you for your support!
