10K/5K Run/Walk Oct. 29

Free to Fly 5K Run/Walk & 10K Run

Midwestern University

555 31st Street, Downers Grove, IL

To raise awareness for domestic violence and Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, Family Shelter Service engages the entire community in a family-friendly and healthy activity — a 10K run for the endurance athletes, a 5K run, or just a casual 5K walk with the family dog. Not only does this event raise awareness around this community issue, but it also raises funds to help our neighbors, family members, co-workers or friends escape the violence and embark on a brave new journey to self-empowerment.

Here’s a preview:

  • All participants receive a finishers medal
  • Indoor locations for registration, warm-ups and locker room
  • Ample parking
  • Large grassy rally space
  • Recovery foods available for everyone
