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.

You can sign up or get more information at KiwanisSantaRunforKids.org.
