Volunteers and Sponsors Needed for 20th Anniversary Lew Blond Run on October 21!

The Lew Blond Memorial 5K Run/Walk is held to honor Lew Blond, a Maple School teacher who passed away from Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS) in February 2000. He was an exceptional and dedicated educator of the applied arts and was revered and cherished by his students, his colleagues, and the parents of the children he served. Lew Blond's family has attended and helped support this race since its inception.

The race course goes through the Maple School neighborhood. Proceeds benefit ALS research through the Les Turner ALS Foundation, scholarships for students at the Glenbrook High Schools, and special District 30 projects.
