A big shout-out to John Hennelly, for his 8th year as head of the event. Thank you to: Scott Ebeling, Bill Leiner, Eleanor Brandt, Charlie Porter, Al White and all of the volunteers that made the event a huge success. Plus, of course the Social Team who delivered the “picnic experience” after the races were over.

Fall Go Run Series


CARA is still having their CARA Fall 'Go Run Series in Humboldt, Warren, and Washington Parks. They also need volunteers as well. 'Go Run was established, with the partnership of the Chicago Park District, to help revitalize the Chicago Parks and to bring all sides of the community together. This is a great way to promote a healthy living lifestyle for people that don't have the opportunity to do so.


They are looking for volunteers and/or participants at these locations. The volunteer work is fairly easy and we ask people to come at 7:30 am. The run starts at 9 am and it’s a free timed 5k and 1 mile run. You may run it, jog it, or walk it with you dog. Whatever suits your needs.


For more information on 'Go Run and to sign up either as a participant or volunteer, please click on the link below.




Have a great week.
