The 2018 Avery Step You Take 5K walk and run and 1.5-mile walk and run took place June 15 at Delavan Christian School.

One-hundred participants ran or walked in the event, which included a display table with posters and photos telling about Avery McCarthy and the Avery House in Haiti. Raffle tickets were sold for $1 or six for $5

About 10 minutes before the walk and run kicked off, Bridget McCarthy climbed up on a step ladder and spoke to the group.

McCarthy first thanked everyone for attending and mentioned the generosity of people who donated items to the raffle. She thanked her friends for helping run this event.
