Larry St. Onge Memorial Run to Benefit Others Race Description
Join us for the first inaugural Larry St. Onge Run to Benefit Others on November 6, 2021 at Danada Forest Preserve in Wheaton, IL. Larry St. Onge inspired all those that knew him to strive for the greater good, to help and support others, and make the world a better place. The Larry St. Onge Memorial Run to Benefit Others was created to honor Larry and carry his legacy forward by doing what we can to benefit those less fortunate.
The Charity 10K, 5K, and Walk event will help support those left most vulnerable by Covid-19. All proceeds raised by this event will be donated to United Way's Covid-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund.
Join us for a great fall race on the crushed limestone trails at beautiful Danada forest Preserve in Wheaton and help us "give back" for those less fortunate. A Charity Walk will also be held for those wishing to participate but at a more relaxed pace.
If you are not able to run in this event, you can participate as a remote runner, or simply donate in memory of Larry and to help those in need. By running or donating, together we can make a difference to relieve the burden on those whose lives have been upended by this crisis.
