For the past seven years, proceeds have been sent to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospitals. Along with the change in administrative responsibility, the Westmont Park District Board of Commissioners has partnered together with the local nonprofit People’s Resource Center (PRC) so that proceeds from the race can benefit neighbors in need right here in our community. As a partner in the community, PRC helps to meet neighbors’ basic needs such as food, shelter, and clothing assistance services. In addition, PRC provides job, computer, and literacy training programs and art empowerment classes to help neighbors in need here in DuPage County.
We appreciate the support you’ve given to the event in the past, and hope that you will continue to be part of the 8th annual Race to the Flag 5k in 2017! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
