A Place to Gather 5K Race Description

2020 Gather 5K has been postponed. Date TBD.


www.APlacetoGather.5K.run  August 15, 2020 -   9:00am


909 English Prairie RD, Spring Grove, IL 60081

We are excited for the opportunity to raise funds again this August to build a community playground and walking path through the 2020 Gather5K and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk. This year’s event will be both in person and virtual. We are continuing to raise funds to build a community adventure park and walking path on LifeSpring Community Church’s new property at the corner of 173 and Siedschlag in Spring Grove, IL.

Last year we raised $10,000. Our goal this year is to raise $30,000 toward the construction of the playground and walking path for the community to enjoy!

Out of care for those participating, we are moving forward cautiously, in faith and will make adjustments as needed based on information known to us by the CDC and local and state officials. Should future recommendations and guidelines regarding COVID-19 inhibit us from having the event in person, we will adjust the event to a virtual only option.
