I normally sign up for both of these events. I am very glad to see a fundraiser that keeps our community fit and active instead of revolving around food. There is also another 5k that is not mentioned here being held by Aux Sable on May 3rd. It is $20, and the proceeds go to help autism awareness. You can find it in the Joliet Patch or on Facebook. I am trying to post the link, but it is not working
