Skokie SwiFters Run/Walk Club
Skokie Swifters is a running and walking club for everyone from beginners to experienced distance runners. Whether you want to get moving outside, are looking to make some new friends, or need a little motivation while you train for an upcoming race, you'll find a welcome community in the Swifters. Read more about our mission.
Check out the calendar page for details about our weekly Tuesday Trails and Saturday Scamper meetups and special events. And check out the race log to see what other Swifters are running, and if you feel inspired, sign up for a race and let us know!
On Sunday, May 21, 10:00am-12:00pm, the Skokie community will come together to support the NT's efforts to collect money to buy school supplies, backpacks, and headphones for children in need in our local Skokie school districts.
To show how much of an impact this event has, NT has been able to purchase enough supplies for over 2,000 backpacks over the last year! Their ultimate goal is to raise enough money to get to 5,000. As an example for how great the need is, Old Orchard Junior High School alone has requested 1,200 backpacks. Your support makes a HUGE difference!
We hope to defend our title as top fundraisers (last year we raised over $1,000 - great job team!) and want as many Swifters as possible to show up and run. Click here for more info about how to sign up and contribute.
