Special Events

Wendell Foster holds several events each year that help us increase awareness of the work we do and raise funds to continue our mission.

The Wendell Foster Half Marathon & 5K is a fully supported 13.1-mile or 3.1 mile run on a flat and fast route through Owensboro.

The Forever a Difference Maker Gala is our flagstone event with wonderful food, music, and exciting items to bid on including vacations, unique experiences, and more. We also use this fun-filled night to honor the many Difference Makers who help fulfill our mission of empowering people with disabilities.

The Wendell Foster’s Special Needs Expo is an opportunity for community agencies to collaborate in providing information about resources and services that will assist families in supporting a loved one with a disability.

One of our largest peer-to-peer fundraisers is the annual Golf Scramble. This day on the course is like no other with many local golfers coming together to support Wendell Foster’s mission. Plenty of fun, food, drinks and prizes make this a day to remember!
