W.O.W. History

World of Wonders park in Carthage was a community build project that was built and exists entirely through the philanthropy of others. The park was built in 1994 in the memory of Emily Frankovich, and construction was completed in just four days. In recent times the park has fallen on hard times and is in need of repairs and re-built in the future. In 2013, a committee launched a capital campaign to help rebuild the park. W.O.W., Inc. is a registered 501 (C) 3 organization.

Race proceeds benefit the W.O.W., Inc. Capital Campaign
