8th Annual ALS Awareness 5k

August 17, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

8th Annual ALS Awareness 5k
Saturday, August 17
Emden, IL
8:30am – 5k Start

Join the Emden, IL community for the 8th Annual ALS Awareness 5k on Saturday, August 17! While the chip-timed race is competitive, all types of runners and walkers are welcome. And it’s more than just a race – there’s a post-race meal, raffle, silent auction and more! Partial proceeds from the event benefit the Les Turner ALS Foundation

As an added bonus in 2019, there will be a kids dash fun run before the 5k at 8am for just $10. This is a non-competitive event to give kids ages 9 and under another way to participate and be a part of raising money to support people living with ALS.

Online registration closes at 4pm on Thursday, August 15!
