Freedom Four 4-Mile Run Returns on July 4th
Jun 13, 2016 4:14 PM -
The Glen Ellyn Park District's annual Freedom Four™ 4-Mile Run will take place on Monday, July 4th at 8am. A popular summertime event, the race attracts more than 800 runners, walkers, and strollers each year, helping raise money for the Glen Ellyn Park District Scholarship Fund. Participants can pre-register for the race by June 26th for just $25 per person, a $5 savings over race-day registration. The Glen Ellyn Park District recognizes there are community residents who may suffer, at any time, from economic setbacks that might preclude their participation in Park District programs. For this reason, the Park District established a scholarship fund enabling low income individuals and families to participate in recreational programs. The scholarship fund helps over 200 families, right here in Glen Ellyn. More than $2,000 was raised from the race in 2015.
