The Spirit of Benny 10K/5K Fun Run and Walk

El Dorado Trail, Placerville 


This annual event, named in memory of Benny Penner who passed away in 2010 from Batten disease, benefits nonprofit agencies that serve seriously ill children and their families. This year’s beneficiary was the Make-A-Wish Foundation. As usual, the race was filled with enthusiasm, live music, great food, and generous community support.
