Our 2016 Opportunity to Give Back “Kicks for Kids” will have a donation box at early packet pickup and on race day.  Runners/walkers know how important it is to have good athletic shoes so we are asking for your help in holding a shoe drive for the Oregon Elementary PE students.  You would be surprised at the number of kids that don’t have good athletic shoes to keep at school for PE.  We are asking for new to gently used athletic shoes in youth sizes 12-5.  There will be a donation box set up at early packet pick up and race day.

Looking forward to seeing you in 2016!  Like us on Facebook “Autumn on Parade 5K” and add our FB event for updates/changes.  Questions about the race you may call (815)601-3093 or email .
