Christmas in July Race Series

Something for Everyone!! 5K/10K, 6/12/24-Hour + Santa Fun Run

The Christmas in July Races will take place in Lisle Community Park on July 17-18, 2015. These races are in the evening and will include Santa Claus Fun Runs, 5K, 10K, as well as, 6/12/24-Hour timed event races. This is a great venue for the entire family with strollers allowed during the 5K and 10K races. Surely no one would mind if Santa showed up so early this year that he was wearing shorts, and even sweating a little. So much the better if it gave us all an excuse to dress up and get into the holiday spirit just a few days after the July 4th fireworks celebration.

16th Annual Annie Ryan Run -  5K & 1 Mile Kids Dash

Sunday, May 17, 2015

On May 17, 2015, we will proudly host the 16th Annual Annie Ryan Run to benefit Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago’s Children’s Programs. We do it in memory of a little girl who left us too soon but whose spirit and smile will always be with us.

Annie Marie Ryan was born August 10, 1984, the youngest of our six children. For twelve and a half wonderful years we were blessed with her presence. She was a feisty child, full of life and love, with a smile that could light up a room! We lost Annie to a brain tumor in January of 1997. As a family, we came to the realization that the only way we could really heal was to try to help other children.
