What is the Halloween 5K Run/Walk?

The Moraine Valley Health, Fitness & Recreation Center hosts an annual Halloween 5k Run/Walk in conjunction with the Moraine Valley Foundation. Open to the Moraine Valley campus and community, this race donates all proceeds to the Moraine Valley Foundation, which provides need-based scholarships to students including FitRec employees. By participating, you can make a difference in the lives of students by helping them afford a college education. Because it is near Halloween, costumes are highly encouraged. Strollers are allowed on the course.
