Man Starts 50 Races with Run Rock & Roll

He wants to raise $100,000 for Easter Seals
EAST PEORIA - More than 500 people laced up their sneakers Saturday morning for the first-ever- Run Walk & Roll.

One of those runners said it's the first of dozens of races he plans to complete.

Mark Scott has a goal this year. Run 50 races in 2014 and raise $100,000 for Easter Seals. He already raised half of that just from participating Saturday. He said donations poured in for the cause.

"My goal was to run 50, but I'll probably run closer to 75. A lot of people are pledging per race so the more races I run, the more money and opportunity I have for the kids," Scott said.

Easter Seals said it was happy with the turn out and hopes people come back for the second annual, next year.
