A portion of the proceeds from “Got2Run for Education” benefit schools supported by the one-five Foundation, which has promoted participation in this event since it originated in 2012. Over the past six years, nearly 2,400 Foundation supporters have participated in “Got2Run,” raising more than $29,000 for District 15 schools.
The race is Saturday, May 19, at 8 a.m. and this year will be held in Arlington Heights, 200 East Sigwalt Street. It will feature a 2.62-mile “Micro Marathon” run/walk, and an 8K (4.97-mile) run.
The “Got2Run for Education” run/walk is hosted by the Northwest Road Runners, Inc., a local nonprofit running club established to organize a run/walk to raise money for schools and promote wellness in children. Its goal is to get kids and their parents interested in running as a healthy lifestyle choice.
