Santa run benefit

To the Editor:

This year, Turning Point is very fortunate to be the beneficiary of a great new event!

The Kiwanis Club of Crystal Lake has put together a Santa Run/Walk for Kids. This event will benefit five local charities that help children in McHenry County: Big Brothers Big Sisters, Girls on the Run, CASA, the Light Center/Main Stay and the agency I work for, Turning Point.

Sunday, Dec. 2, will be a great day to get out and spend some time with your family. We’ve got a 5K Santa Run (every runner gets a Santa Suit to run in!) as well as a 1-mile Reindeer Dash where kids of all ages can walk in reindeer antlers!

Both routes begin and end at the Raue Center in downtown Crystal Lake. A thundering herd of Santas headed for the finish line will be a sight you won’t want to miss! It will be a great chance to spend some holiday time with your whole family as well as raise some money to help out kids in our communities.
