We blinked - it’s already June! Come JOURNEY with us in JUNE…
This month's goal is all about sharing your walking and running journeys! Your goal - and it doesn’t cost a dime - is to share snippets from your personal walking and running activities. Take a journey on a new running path. Share a walking journey with a friend. Journey on a summer vacation to a new hiking trail. However you choose to journey this June, be sure to snap a pic, tag us (@skokieswifters), and use the hashtags #JourneyInJune, #SwifterSpirit, and #StaySwifty - and that's it! You can also send us your pics directly.
For our community service event this month, you can also join us at Strides for Pride, a community fun run or walk starting from Whiskey Girl Tavern in Rogers Park. All paces are welcome for this 3-mile run or 1-mile walk After the run, stick around for music, drinks, and fun and PRIZES! Get all the details and register on Eventbrite.
Tickets are only $5, and 100% of all ticket sales will be donated directly to Indiana Youth Group as they continue to work towards more inclusion and support for Indiana LGBTQ+ youth.
Niles township Fun run update
On May 21, the Swifters topped our fundraising goal from last year to raise $2,057 for the Niles Township Food Panty to provide backpacks for area kids who need them. We had so much fun, and we're proud to once again be the TOP FUNDRAISER for this very worthy cause.
