Thanks to the past support of our community and local businesses last year, we were able to raise $15,000 for the Scholarship and Grant Fund that will benefit the teachers and students of District 25. We had almost 900 participants in attendance representing 9 schools in which over 400 of the runners were students. The Just Move it! Challenge organizers would like to thank our committed sponsors for helping us bring this event to the community again this year. Area sponsors include Northwest Community Healthcare, Arlington Teachers' Association, Wellness 365, Runners High 'n Tri, Whole Foods, All About Kids Dentistry, Crossfit Arlington Heights, Benefit Express, Franczek Radelet Attorneys and Counselors, and Village Bank and Trust.

All proceeds will go to the Scholarship and Grant Fund, benefiting the education of School District 25 students.

The Scholarship and Grant Fund is a partnership between the Arlington Heights Council of PTAs and ABC/25 Foundation. The Arlington Heights Council of PTAs is the not-for-profit PTA organization that unites all 9 school PTAs. The Council uses proceeds from this event to award scholarships to graduating high school seniors who attended District 25 schools and endeavors to recognize personal achievement. Scholarship selection is based on efforts in the classroom, school and community involvement, motivation, and paid and volunteer work experience.ABC/25 Foundation is a not-for-profit organization of parents, teachers, administrators, and business leaders. The Foundation will use proceeds from this event to provide funds for educational enhancements to District 25 classrooms through special teacher and school grants.
