In the interest of keeping the whole family healthy and fit, consider spending a beautiful Saturday morning on the Maryville Des Plaines Campus for the nonprofit’s Annual 5K Family Fun Run and 1-Mile Family Walk. This is an opportunity for all ages to support Maryville’s Therapeutic Residential Programs for boys and girls and get a new t-shirt in the bargain!
Sportsminded folks will want to take note: Chicago Bears Defensive Lineman #94 Cornelius Washington will also be on hand to meet fans and present awards to participants. Families with strollers are welcome to participate in the 1-Mile Walk around the scenic Maryville campus. And anyone who wants to carbo load after the event will be glad to know that the Tap House Grill of Des Plaines will host the post-run party.
The 5K Family Fun Run/Walk will take place on Saturday, June 4, 2016 at 9 a.m. on the Maryville Des Plaines Campus, 1150 N. River Road, Des Plaines. Cost per runner is $35; family rate is $120. Groups can receive a price break of $25 per person, but they must register online or contact Julie Blandford at 847-294-1985 to receive that adjusted fee.
