This year’s event will include a 1K Kid’s Dash at 9:30 a.m. and a food drive supporting Together We Cope, a nonprofit homeless prevention agency based in Tinley Park.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance’s Camp I Am Me, a burn camp for children ages 8 to 16 who are burn survivors. In its first four years, the event raised more than $63,000 for the camp through sponsorships and participation.
Awards will be presented to the male and female with the best overall time and by age group.
