Due to the unfortunate circumstances of COVID 19, it was in the best interest of participants and those living on the Mooseheart campus to convert this year's event to an all-virtual event. This will allow all participants, near and far, the opportunity to participate in this annual event when a time and place is most convenient and safe during the weeks of Nov. 16-30. This is a very important fundraiser that supports Mooseheart Child City & School, home to nearly 200 children each year. While the 5K Run/Walk would normally give you a sneak peek of the annual Holiday Lights Displays on Mooseheart’s Campus, this year we're excited to see where your trails will take you and what you, your friends, coworkers, and family will do to make it the most memorable event! You can still stop by the Mooseheart campus to see the annual Holiday Lights Display and safely drive through the campus from Nov. 27-Dec. 31--it's worth the trip!

Mooseheart Child City and School, one of the best-kept secrets in the Fox Valley area, sits just 40 miles west of Chicago and was built by the Moose Fraternity over 100 years ago. It serves children who, for a variety of reasons, cannot be provided a suitable home by their family. Mooseheart continues to provide the highest quality of care and education and this challenge can only be met with your generosity. We need to continue to strengthen an academic program and vocational program that works - and allow students to take strides to learn at the appropriate grade level and graduate with a college scholarship. Yes, 80% of Mooseheart graduating seniors enroll in two and four-year universities around the country.

Mooseheart Child City and School gives children a second chance at childhood in a safe environment where they enjoy a solid education and loving home environment.

Because of your generous support and participation, we can continue to provide for the children.

Join us to help reach our goal of $50,000.00
