The non-competitive four-mile walk included 2,600 participants, while nearly 400 individuals took part in the four-mile race, which was won by defending champions Dominic Maio, 30, of West Allis, in 21:23, and Carissa Laack, of Wausau, in 26:02. Rounding out the top three male finishers were Zachary Klowkow, 20, of Sheboygan, in 22:45, and Elijah Sippel, 16, of Windsor Heights, Iowa. Kathy Gardner, 27, of Sheboygan, finished second with a time of 26:36, with Mary Bolich, 54, of Plymouth, third in 27:19.

“It was inspirational to see people from all parts of our community come out for this great event,” said Courtney Weiland, American Cancer Society community development manager. “The funds raised help the American Cancer Society provide free information and support for people facing the disease today, and fund cancer research that will help protect future generations.”

Of 94 fundraising teams, Kohler Co. led the way for the ninth straight year raising a total of nearly $17,140 ($20,620 with the company’s matching fund). Nearly 100 kids participated in the kids’ fun run at the event.

Full results of the event, which is sponsored by Road America, Kohler Co., American Orthodontics, Nemak, Nemschoff, Vollrath, Sheboygan Chevrolet Chrysler, Millipore Sigma, Sartori, Baker Cheese and The Point 104.5/96.1., may be found at hittheroadrun.org .
