Run For Kelli 2018

September 30, 2018, 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Cross Country was one of Kelli O’Laughlin’s favorite sports when she was in middle school. In her name and memory, the Kelli Joy O’Laughlin Foundation is hosting its annual Run For Kelli on Sunday, September 30, 2018.

Kelli was a freshman at Lyons Township when her life was taken by a burglar in her home.  Kelli’s family and much of the community come together to remember her, celebrate her life, and raise money for her foundation.

Run For Kelli Includes a 5K Run or 1 Mile Walk!
The course for the 5K winds its way around Lyons Township High School South Campus, following their Cross Country course, where Kelli attended school as a freshman in 2011. Last year, more than 900 runners, joggers, and walkers followed the 5K path to raise money for college scholarships to high school seniors throughout Illinois and the Chicago area.  There are no streets used during this run and this year there will be water on the course at the 2-mile marker.

Runners prizes will be awarded for top 3 male and female finishers and top 3 female and male finishers in our age categories.

Early Bird Registration Until August 31; Register early to save $5 off per person! Prices go up to $35 after this date.
