On this very special date, the Mothers’ Milk Bank of the Western Great Lakes will participate in the Long Grove Heritage Run & Walk, its first public event and fundraiser. This family-friendly event is organized by the Rotary Club of Long Grove, Illinois to raise money and awareness for worthy causes.
You can support MilkBankWGL in the Heritage Run & Walk in two ways:
1. Register for the 5K run or 3K walk on behalf of MilkBankWGL. The registration fee is $25 and includes a free event shirt and pancake breakfast (the breakfast cost for nonparticipants is $6 adult/$3 child). Each runner and walker will be expected to raise at least $100 in pledges.
2. Pledge your financial support to the MilkBankWGL runners and/or walkers.
On September 10, you can check in for the Heritage Run & Walk between 6:30 and 8:00 am at the Kildeer Countryside School, 3100 Old McHenry Road in downtown Long Grove, which is just northwest of Routes 53 and 83.
Both the 5K run and 3K walk begin at 8:30 am in the historic Long Grove Business District. The course then winds over Long Grove country roads. Split times are given at 1 & 2 mile marks. Water and aid stations are provided. Click here for a map of the course. The course is USAATF certified #IL-99027JW.
