Expanding Lives 5K Run/Walk
Niger is often considered to be "the worst place to be a woman." Women have limited access to education, which is both the cause and effect of many social, economic, and political problems. Expanding Lives (EL) is a Chicago-based not-for-profit organization which works to empower West African women, primarily from the country of Niger. Expanding Lives Junior Board is hosting a 5K Run/Walk on June 30th. We see this 5K as an opportunity to collaborate with friends, families, and neighbors while working to fund a program we know well and believe in. So come out and lace up to support a local organization and women's access to education in West Africa. We'll see you there! The race will take place in Erickson Woods, a Forest Preserve located in Northfield. Registration will be open from 7:00 to 7:45. The run will start at 8 AM and the walk will follow at 8:15. Feel free to use baby joggers during the walk event. The cost is $25 for adult runners, $15 for children age 12 and under and $10 for students (student ID required at check-in); if you register the day of, please be prepared to pay an additional $5. Food and a raffle ticket are included in this fee. Again, thanks so much for your support!
