Start out with a 5K run before the June 11 Block Party @ St. Norbert, a North Shore kick off to summer. A portion of profits from this year’s 5k will be donated to Erika’s Lighthouse, a beacon of hope for adolescent depression. A very sensitive and timely cause for our community, the Winnetka-based organization educates school communities about teen depression, eliminating the stigma associated with mental illness and empowers teens to take charge of their mental health.
The 5K steps off at 8 a.m. June 11, with registration opening at 7 a.m. Awards will be given to overall male and female finishers and to first place male and female in each age group.
For more information about the Block Party, visit the St. Norbert website.
