Lew Blond Memorial 5k Run/Walk

May 20

Lace-up your running shoes! Whether you are an avid runner or just looking to get some steps in, we’d love to see you at the 22nd annual Lew Blond Memorial 5K Run/Walk on May 20 in Northbrook, IL. This event honors former Northbrook/Glenview School District 30 teacher Lew Blond, who passed away from ALS in 2000.

A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to the Les Turner ALS Foundation in Lew’s memory. There are tons of activities for all age levels including the Little Lew 50-yard dash for children up to 6 years old. The Lew Blond 5K is a great chance for people of all ability levels to get some exercise, enjoy the sun and support ALS care and research.

Sign up now and we’ll see you on May 20!
