In Memory of Will Grosch
In the Fall of 2019, the Fun Run in Color committee lost founding member Will Grosch to his battle against ALS. Will was a Rotarian and Play for All Playground and Garden Foundation Board Member who was instrumental in bringing this race to Wheaton in 2013. His kindness and generosity to the Sensory Garden Playground and the Wheaton community will be missed.
