On a cold, windy Sunday morning, more than 300 people bundled up to run and walk during the second annual "From Here to Healing" 5k run/walk at Independence Grove near Libertyville.
Zacharias Sexual Abuse Center in Gurnee held the fundraising event, with proceeds going toward counseling, prevention education and advocacy programs that are provided free at the center.

"We are really excited. It's a fun run and casual event and we wanted it to be very family-friendly," said Jamie Roberts, events and communications manager.
The center had a fundraising goal of $30,000 for the event.
Prizes were given to individuals and teams participating. A finish line celebration and entertainment closed out the event.
