When?   You can complete the race anytime now through Nov. 8th. 

Where?  You choose your own route!

What is it? Put on your best costume, grab your family and some friends to race around Park Ridge for a socially distanced 3k. Not a runner? Not a problem! You can walk, bike, scoot, or skate!

Why? This family friendly event is a celebration of all the amazing people in District 64. We might not be able to run as a huge group this year, but this will still be a great way to come together and have some fun!

Who wins?  There are many ways to win! Most creative route, best costume, & there is a special prize for all Tiny Tots under 5 who participate. BUT...the coveted prize, the ELF Trophy (and, bragging rights), goes to the school with the highest percentage of participation.

​​​Since 1994, ELF has established and supported innovative educational programs by awarding grants to teachers and staff who are committed to excellence in education. In the 2019/2020 school year, more than $21,300 in grants were awarded to District 64 schools, advancing ELF’s total direct grants to over $835,800!

Watch our video message from D64 principals to learn how your donation to ELF is making a difference in our schools. ELF grants have provided our schools with unique training opportunities, collaboration stations, stand-up desks, 21st century learning centers, broadcasting rooms, and more!
