The Arlington Heights Rotary Club held its first annual Santa Sleigh 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk this past Saturday, drawing over 600 runners and walkers supporting this terrific event
Among the runners? Some of our fearless Arlington Heights Memorial Library staff! There's Christopher, first on the left....
The fund raiser brought in $16,000 to help with Rotary Club Internationals efforts to eradicate polio worldwide, and to help the Arlington Heights community effort, the Drive to Revive Memorial Park. Go Christopher...Number 114!
It was a magnificent sight to see hundreds and hundreds of Santa's clad in five piece red suits and white beards running through our downtown streets. Though we did miss the very beginning of the race, we heard that it began with a rousing chorus of "Jingle Bells" and lots of "Ho, Ho, Ho's".
Well done Christopher!
And well done library staffers!
