Join us for the 10th anniversary of the Greater LaGrange YMCA's Reindeer Run 5K at the Brookfield Zoo on Saturday, December 7!
This chip-timed race will take you through the scenic Brookfield Zoo, which will be dazzlingly decorated for the holiday season. Participants will receive free parking, breakfast, race T-shirt and all-day admission to the zoo! Bikes and dogs are not allowed in the race. Runners with strollers may participate, but must line up and start behind the other runners. Parents want to run? Childcare will be provided.
All proceeds from this special event support the Greater LaGrange YMCA's annual scholarship fund, which provides financial assistance to families in our very own community who otherwise could not afford to access our beneficial programming and resources. The YMCA believes that no one should be turned away for an inability to pay. As a result, we provide numerous scholarships every year to children and families so they can attend summer camp, take part in programs, and benefit from a healthy lifestyle. By participating you are giving to our annual scholarship fund and we thank you!
