About This Activity

The Run For Learning 5K is an annual five kilometer race that began in 2014 as a way to raise awareness of and funds for Grayslake, IL preschools. This event is intended to provide a competitive race for athletes of all abilities as well as a family friendly atmosphere of community. Since the first race, the focus of the Run For Learning 5K has expanded to become a race that raises funds for licensed, early-education lefts (providing preschool and/or kindergarten programs). Proceeds from this annual event will go to teachers at licensed early-education lefts in Grayslake, IL and the surrounding area communities through a grant process.

The 3rd annual Run for Learning 5k walk/run/kids fun run takes place on Saturday September 24th for those of you who love a family friendly event. Between the 5k, 1k, and kids fun run along with kid friendly activities, it is sure to please everyone in the family. Bring friends, neighbors, and family for a fun filled family fun morning.
