Why Have a Fun Run?
The Fun Run is the major fundraiser for the Wilsonville Kiwanis Club. The club seeks to raise funds through sponsorships from local businesses and generous donations. We invest that money back into the kids in our community through scholarships and grants. In 2012, Kiwanis became a local champion for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, which provides a book each month to preschool children in the Wilsonville area. To learn more about scholarships and grants, or the Imagination Library, contact us. Read More
