The Story

EVENT DATE: May 09, 2015

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Jun 30, 2015

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED!  YOU CAN STILL REGISTER IN PERSON ON RACE DAY - SATURDAY, MAY 9.

On your marks...get set...GO! to the 5th Annual Elim Eagles’ Wings 5K Run/Walk/Roll on Saturday, May 9, 2015, at 9:00 a.m.!

Join us on the grounds of Elim Christian Services in Palos Heights, Illinois, to celebrate and support the work of the agency. Register for the 5K or for the 1-mile short loop option. Kids can also enjoy a free pre-race obstacle course.  In addition, this year's 5K event has a "superhero" theme, and costumes are welcome!  

All pre-registered participants will receive a free T-shirt! Participants will also enjoy music, refreshments, and raffle drawings.

This fun family event is open to the public, and participants are encouraged to raise funds for Elim along with their registration fee. All proceeds directly benefit children and adults with disabilities at Elim Christian Services, a 501(c)(3) organization. The Elim 5K raises essential funds to purchase program and therapeutic equipment for our students and adults. This year we hope to raise funds for:

  • 12 computer carts for SMART Board iMacs
  • A new accessible ramp for our school stage
  • A specialized Rifton Stander for our elementary school program
  • A complete new outdoor exercise space for children with autism
  • A new personal care standing lift for out adult programs
  • 98 new chairs to replace old, broken chairs at our Orland campus
  • General support for our Outreach program
  • At least 200 Elim Military Kits to be sent to military personnel serving overseas

Because classrooms and campuses are also competing to bring in the most participants, make sure to enter the name of the student for whom you are participating, and/or the classroom or campus you are representing. You will be asked to provide this information during the registration process, though it is optional.

To complete your 5K experience, note that “Family friendly” tailgating is available for 10-20 families/groups.  If interested, you need to sign up with Holly Bivona (hbivona@elimcs.org).

Elim's mission is to equip children and adults with disabilities to achieve their highest God-given potential. Elim pursues this mission by providing educational, vocational, and therapeutic services to over 1,000 persons with developmental disabilities. Elim Christian Services is located at 13020 S. Central Avenue in Palos Heights, IL, 60463, 23 miles south-southwest of downtown Chicago. Please note, while wheelchairs, strollers, and service dogs are welcome, roller blades, bikes, and non-service dogs are not permitted for the safety of Elim children and adults and other participants.
