On your marks…get set…GO!!!...to the 8th Annual Elim Eagles’ Wings 5K Run, Walk, & Roll! Join us on the grounds of Elim Christian Services in Palos Heights, Illinois, to lace up your running or walking shoes and stride for the finish line on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at 9:00 am.

The Elim Eagles’ Wings 5K Run, Walk, & Roll benefits over 500 children and adults with disabilities, raising essential funds for the purchase of equipment and facility needs for our school and adult services programs. All registered participants will receive a free T-shirt, a free raffle ticket placed in the grand prize drawing, and will also enjoy music, refreshments, and raffle drawings. Kids will even have the opportunity to partake in a free pre-race obstacle course.
In addition, each year’s 5K event has a theme, and costumes are welcome! This year's theme: PAJAMAS! It will be easier than ever to roll out of bed on a Saturday morning in May to walk, run, or roll your way to the finish line of the Eagles' Wings 5K when you can do it in your pajamas! Or jingle in your jammies from home when you sign-up for the Virtual 5K! This PJ5K has the possibility to be the best one yet!
