Racing for Fun and Hope

Racing for Fun and Hope Tagged with:

Seven years ago I remember discussing the idea of a Community 5K Run with the manager of The Chicago Marriott Southwest in Burr Ridge. We both enjoyed running and agreed that a town as special and “scenic” as Burr Ridge could broadly benefit from a family event that involves local retailers and businesses, professionals, parks and neighborhoods in its surrounding communities. After our idea and vision were discussed with Burr Ridge’s Mayor Grasso, the Village Board approved having a Race and gave us their full support. In just a short period of time, it’s amazing how much this annual event has grown and taught me some life lessons that I feel obliged to share for future races.
