Riley’s Run

October 15, 2017

Event Navigation

Running for a friend–who can’t!

From the moment he signed up for the Milwaukee Marathon, Riley Enright knew he would be making his first attempt at 26.2 miles for the personal challenge – but also for a greater cause

Riley not only decided to sign up for his first marathon, he is also trying to raise money for the Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation, which supports research and provides support for those with neurological disorders. The foundation has raised more than $4 million since its inception in 2001.

“I know that Bryon and people in chairs would love to walk, to run, to push themselves,” said Enright. “Because they push themselves every day – out of necessity. I’m sure they would love to do run a marathon for fun.” I have biked across the state to raise money because of Bryon, and I could picture Bryon in his chair next to me, thinking he would love to do this.”
