Now that we’ve all caught up a little bit on sleep, it’s time to address how awesome the 24 Hour Run was! This year, we completed 219 miles and made some wonderful memories. Thank you so much to our Highland Park track family, donors, and sponsors who helped us put together a successful event. Just a reminder: PayPal is open until February 23rd, and we are accepting other types of donations until the end of the month. Thanks again, and stay tuned for more updates!
Have you been putting off getting new running shoes? Well, wait no more. This weekend, February 7th and 8th, Running Away Multisport in Deerfield will be donating $5 from every shoe purchase to the 24 Hour Run! Just mention the event at checkout. Hours are 10-6 on Saturday and 11-5 on Sunday. Tell all your friends and please stop in. See you there!
If you aren’t already super excited about the fast-approaching 24 Hour Run, this will get you in the spirit!!!

Congratulation’s to Les Turner ALS Foundation!
This past Friday, the students at Highland Park High School voted on this year’s Charity Drive recipient. The charities on the ballot were Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Friends United for Juvenile Diabetes Research, and Les Turner ALS Foundation. At the end of the day, Les Turner ALS Foundation was announced the winner!
First you lose your ability to speak. Then, your ability to move. Next, you lose your ability to breathe and finally, your life. Every 90 minutes, someone is diagnosed with ALS, known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. There is no cure for ALS, and once diagnosed, patients typically only live three to five years. ALS is not defined by age, race or gender – anyone can be diagnosed and what is especially cruel is that you are robbed of your ability to move while your brain remains completely intact. We at the Les Turner ALS Foundation are working every day to change that. We provide free services to over 400 patients and their families and children in the Chicagoland area and help fund two research labs at Northwestern Medicine. Your support allows us to serve all in need and find a cure so that someday “ALS Survivor” is a reality.
