Twilight 5K Run/Walk/Roll: Twilight 5K Run/Walk/Roll

About this Opportunity

Date: 09/10/22

GLASA is holding its Annual 5K Twilight Run/Walk/Roll on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10th and we need your help!

The Twilight Run/Walk /Roll & Post-Race Party is one of the largest CARA (Chicago Area Runners Association) certified 5K races in the Chicago-land area featuring disabled and non-disabled athletes competing side by side. The purpose of this event is to provide exposure to Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association and an opportunity for athletes who have physical or visual disabilities to embrace the GLASA motto of “Let No One Sit on the Sidelines”. The start and finish of the race, as well as the Post Race Party, is at the Gorton Community Center, with the course winding through the beautiful streets of Lake Forest. 

We are currently recruiting volunteers aged 14 and up to help in a variety of volunteer positions.
