The Naperville Jaycees are excited to announce that they will be hosting their first Virtual 5K/10K Race, presented by Men in Black Pest Control Services.
In June of 2020, the Naperville Jaycees were disheartened to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Naperville Last Fling due to COVID-19. This community festival is the Jaycees’ largest fundraiser of the year and money raised is donated to local nonprofits. Determined to do everything possible to raise critical funds for our community, the Last Fling Leadership Team decided to get creative with their fundraising for 2020.
Registration for the event is open until September 30th. Participants will be able to run the race at anytime during the month of October 2020. The cost to participate will be $15 for children 12 and under, and $25 for adults. T-Shirts and Bibs will be available for the first 50 registrants. For more information and to register, please visit www.LastFling.org/Races .
The Naperville Jaycees is a not-for-profit service organization with more than 100 young persons dedicated to providing Naperville area residents with the opportunity to better themselves and to grow personally and professionally while giving through community service and fundraising efforts. Annual events include: Rock the Mic, East Egg Hunt, Lobster Day and countless other worthwhile projects that positively impact the community. The group also organizes and staffs the Last Fling in close cooperation with the City of Naperville, the Naperville Park District, numerous Naperville community organizations and hundreds of volunteers. Proceeds from the Last Fling are given to other nonprofit organizations in Naperville and surrounding communities. Over the past two decades, the Naperville Jaycees have raised and donated more than two million dollars to various organizations in the surrounding communities. Monthly meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at Judd Kendall VFW located at 908 West Jackson Avenue in Naperville.
