If you’d like to get a workout while showing support for our Military, there’s a great opportunity coming up at The Arboretum of South Barrington this Saturday, November 17th. The South Barrington Park District is teaming up with the Arboretum to host a pre-Thanksgiving Miles for the Military 5K run, which will kick off at 9 a.m.
Race day registration for Saturday’s Miles for the Military 5K Run begins at 7:00 a.m. at the race’s starting point, which is the Arboretum’s Fountain Plaza in front of the iPic Theaters. The route will weave through the Arboretum and, if you register in advance, the cost is $30 per person or $10 for kids age 12 and under. The price for race-day registration is $40 per person or $15 for kids. The ticket price includes a long sleeve performance tee for adults and a free swag bag for the kids.
All proceeds will benefit Air Compassion for Veterans, an organization that “provides needed transportation resources to our Wounded Warriors seeking care”.
But wait, THERE’S MORE!……
