Sponsored by the Central Illinois group of the Illinois Spina Bifida Association, the annual Walk-and-Roll-a-Thon is held to benefit those with spina bifida and to raise awareness about spina bifida.

The 17th Annual Memorial Walk-and-Roll-a-Thon event will help the organization continue to serve, strengthen, and enrich the lives of those in Central Illinois - and those who love them - through prevention, education, and advocacy.
