Event Information

Saturday, October 02, 2021 from 7:30am - 3:00pm

Calling all Superheroes: Announcing the mighty return of Easterseals DuPage & Fox Valley's Run for the Kids: Superhero Hustle! 

All abilities and skill levels are welcome in this 5K Run/2-Mile walk event.

Join us to run or walk, in capes and costumes (or maintain your everyday identity) through residential Villa Park along the Prairie Path, or plan your own route as a virtual participant.

We are making plans to safely* welcome runners, walkers, rollers, and volunteers back to this event. Together we will celebrate the strength and resiliency of our community and the children we serve.
 
Whether you join us virtually or in-person, your participation will help fund the therapies children need to achieve their own superhero feats and reach new goals.
