Kiwanis Santa Run

To the Editor:

Two-and-a-half years ago, the combined agencies of Big Brothers Big Sisters, Turning Point, CASA, Girls on the Run of Northwest Illinois and Main Stay asked the Crystal Lake Kiwanis Club to come up with a fundraiser to benefit the children of our county.

As the mission of the worldwide Kiwanis Clubs is to serve the children of the world, we formed a committee and created the McHenry County Kiwanis Santa Run for Kids to do just that.

After a year of planning, we had our extremely successful inaugural 5K/1-mile event that was held at the Raue Center for the Arts in downtown Crystal Lake. Almost 1,000 participants, volunteers and spectators showed up on the first Sunday of December last year to enjoy this fantastic event.

The Santa run (or walk) is sure to become a family tradition that will last for years to come. Please go to Kiwaniscrystallake.com or call 815-459-1773 and join all the fun for a great cause. We have openings for runners, walkers and volunteers.

As the McHenry County Kiwanis Santa Run is always held on the first Sunday of December, this year’s event will be Dec. 1, with a 9 a.m. start.

The Crystal Lake Kiwanis club is always looking for new members. If you enjoy doing good things for the community, you should link up with us and make positives happen.
