Elmwood Park 5k Performance

Elmwood Park Chamber of Commerce 3rd Annual 5k and Kids Fun Run

If you've ever had the opportunity to run a race...whether it be the 50 yard dash or a marathon, you know that even the smallest amount of cheering from spectators goes a long way to motivate you to the finish. This is why this year, we will be cheering on the runners of this 5k race meant to benefit some very worthy causes. Our team will perform right on the race course in order to keep the runner's spirits up.

 

For more information, or if family or friends want to sign up for the run, go to the official website.
