With over 170 runners our 3rd annual RaceWay 5K Fun Run & Walk was a big success and helped raised thousands of dollars for our charity organization! The weather was as good as it could of been with the storms and hot temps that were lurking the night before.
 
It was an early morning for our members and volunteers as we prepared for the gathering of the races. Sure enough the showed and we were well on our way to another successful event! 8am the horn sounded and the racers were off with the "formula 1" racers in the front of the pack and the "go cart" racers not far behind! 17 minutes later our winner crosses the finish line with all the runner ups soon to follow! Before we knew it we were awarding the winners and celebrating the individual victories!
 
We want to thank everyone involved and who supported the event for the continued success year after year. A full set of event pictures are available in the 2015 RaceWay 5K Photo Album! Check out this great event video put together by our friends at Fox Valley Community TV Network.

The New Jerri Hoffmann Child & Family in Center from the Children Home & Aid Organization here in Carpentersville will provide top notch child care opportunities for those who seek and for those who qualify for assistance. Children who are currently enrolled and the old facility who will be soon moving to the new facility will experience a major upgrade and increased enjoyment for everything the new center has to offer.
 
Recently Julie Carson from the Children Home & Aid Organization visited our club to discuss the latest and greatest with the new facility. Set to open in July, the new state of the art facility will quickly become one of the premier child care facilities in our local community and any parent interested in enrolling their child should consider sooner than later. The center does provide government assistance for those who qualify which will allow any parent to still provide excellent childcare at a much reduced rate which is very beneficial for the parent and child in many ways! For more information about enrollment and the new center itself  you can contact Julie at: 847.426.9505 or jcarson@childrenshomeandaid.org.

Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time
When Mariana Day moved in 1989 to the small beach town of Chacala, in Nayarit, Mexico, she noticed that the surrounding rural areas struggled to maintain schools.
