The larger Sandy Hook 5K Run for the Families is being held in Connecticut on the same day and is dedicated to the 26 who lost their lives in the tragic Sandy Hook event in December, 2012. Naperville Runs for Sandy Hook is a group of runners and walkers from the Chicago area registered as virtual runners for the Connecticut run. We will be hosting our own 5K run/walk on Saturday March 23, 2013 at 8:00 AM at Danada Forest Preserve in Wheaton, IL. We are dedicated to raising funds for the families of Sandy Hook as they deal with the aftermath of the loss of their loved ones.
Again, 100% of your donation goes to THE SANDY HOOK SCHOOL SUPPORT FUND, administered by the United Way of Western Connecticut in partnership with Newtown Savings Bank. A local board of Newtown community leaders is being convened to determine how the fund is most needed and will be best utilized. The United Way and Newtown Savings Bank have waived all administration fees to the fund.
Thank you for your support!
