The Evanston-based Greater Illinois Pediatric Palliative care Coalition will host its Butterfly 5K Run, Walk & Flutter.
Sunday, October 14
Busse Woods in Elk Grove Village
This is a family-oriented charity event for individuals of all fitness levels with a 5K run, 1K walk and a Flutter Fun Run for kids of all ages. The 5K is professionally chip-timed. Bring the family and enjoy the post-run party in the park with children’s activities, entertainers, music and more!
Proceeds of this event benefit five nonprofit organizations that serve children, including JourneyCare’s pediatric program. A group of JourneyCare team members are forming their own team and you can learn details about that here.
Registration is $30 for the 5K run or 1K walk; $5 for children participating in the Flutter Fun Run; $100 for families of five or more (discounted rate!); or $25 for virtual participation. Donations of support are also accepted for this event. For more details or to register, click here.
