LAKEMOOR – A 5K fundraiser planned for this Saturday has been canceled, the village's parks and recreation coordinator said.

The event was intended to raise money to cover the village's expanded parks schedule this year, but it was canceled due to too few participants and the costs associated with putting the event on, said John Guenther, the village's parks and recreation coordinator.

The village may hold another 5K in the future but on a smaller scale, he said.

A letter has been sent out to participants, letting them know they can request a refund or donate the registration fee to the parks and recreation department.
