Matt’s Mile 5K and 10K–a Run/Walk on the Prairie and Party

September 23 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Run for a cause, stay for the party! Unfortunately everyone knows of a family impacted by a cancer diagnosis. Participating in this race/party will benefit these families! 12 Oaks Foundation provides grants to families to keep their children in their activities while a family member battles cancer. No longer must families decide between paying the bills or keeping their children active and healthy. 12 Oaks provides up to $500 per child and $2,000 per family to keep these children busy and engaged in their passion and community. This year 12 Oaks will provide over $65,000 in grants to families throughout Illinois and Wisconsin.


New this year, sign up as a team of five or more and win prizes for fastest team, largest team or team that raises the most money!


There is a mile run for kids under 13 years old, and a 5K and 10K. Most of the race is trail runs through the prairie and Oak Openings Nature Reserve. Entry fees include dinner, DJ and there is a beer truck for adults! http://www.active.com/grayslake-il/running/distance-running-races/matt-s-mile-5k-and-10k-2017
