The Elgin and Dundee Township Lions Clubs are sponsoring a 5K run and walk on September 15, 2018. The event will take place in picturesque West Dundee this year. This will be a Lions event but also part of the Heritage Fest weekend. Additional information about the race may be located at: www.lionsheritagefest5k.com. We are offering several levels of sponsorship for this event as may be seen in the flyer above.
As you probably know, the main focus of the Lions is to provide eyeglasses to needy individuals in Elgin and Dundee Township. We work with area schools as well as organizations such as the Community Crisis Center, FISH food pantry to establish physical and financial need. This year we will also be offering vision screening for children as young as six months of age. This race will assist the club in continuing these important community functions that no other service organizations in the area provide.
Checks should be made out to the Elgin Lions Club Foundation which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides funding but both clubs will share the profits equally. Sincerely on behalf of both clubs, thank you for your continuing patronage. We look forward to hearing from you.
P.S. If you cannot achieve one of the categories in the flyer, any donation is greatly appreciated and will be acknowledged at the race.
