2021 Holiday Lights 5k T-shirt


 

We're excited to host this year's 5k event IN-PERSON AND VIRTUALLY And, we're hoping to exceed 50 teams this year! For those participating virtually, you can choose a time and place that's most convenient and safe during the month of November and keep us posted as to where your trails will take you and what you, your friends, coworkers, and family will do to make it the most memorable event!  For those participating in-person on November 20, 2021, the 5K Run/Walk will give you a sneak peek of the annual Holiday Lights Display on Mooseheart’s Campus, one of the largest holiday lights displays in Illinois. And, be sure to tell your friends and neighbors to stop by the Mooseheart campus to see the annual Holiday Lights Display too and safely drive through the campus between Nov. 26-Dec. 31--it's worth the trip!

This is a very important fundraiser that supports Mooseheart Child City & School, home to nearly 200 children each year. 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
