Robert’s Run Idaho 5k – Robert’s run is a community 5k to help bring awareness to child abuse in our communities. This event proceeds go to the Robert Manwill Scholorship Fund.
Robert Manwill was an 8 year old boy from New Plymouth, Idaho. Robert disappeared in July of 2009. Robert was found a week later in an irrigation canal. His mother and her boyfriend were later charged with his death.
