Sandusky 0.5K

The Sandusky 0.5K is an annual event taking place in July that helps raise money for Ability Works, Inc. 

This mere 1640 feet "race" aims to provide a fun atmosphere by incorporating donuts, beer, costume contests, and just plain silliness and fun for all involved to support a great cause, Ability Works!

How Does it Benefit Ability Works?

100% of all race registration proceeds go directly towards Ability Works. The first annual Sandusky 0.5K was held July 2019 and brought in roughly $26,000, which along with the gracious support of the David & Jacquie Clark Family Fund, supported the development of the new state-of-the-art Clark Family Sensory Space.
