Great Western Freedom 4 Run and Walk July 4th –  LeRoy Oaks Forest Preserve is now the 2020 Virtual Great Western Freedom 4 Run/Ride/Walk-a-Thon.           Your support of the Great Western Freedom 4 Run/Walk is an important part of the fundraising efforts necessary for Lazarus House to serve our neighbors in need who are experiencing homelessness or are in crisis. Homelessness is on the rise and expected to increase as much as 45% because of the pandemic. Thanks to all who have supported Lazarus House at this fun event.

We are excited to announce the 2020 VIRTUAL Great Western Freedom 4 Run/Ride/Walk – A – Thon August 1st – 31st instead of the live event normally held on July 4th at LeRoy Oaks Forest Preserve.  In this new event we are looking for people to join our fundraising efforts by running, riding, and walking as much as you want, when you want, and where you want, as a fundraiser to support Lazarus House. You will have the opportunity to participate as an individual, join a team, or become a Team Captain and gather your friends/family to fundraise together, while maintaining social distancing! Participants will earn prizes for their fundraising and participation efforts. There will also be Pop-up challenges on social media to earn even more prizes! We hope you will join us at this exciting new event and continue to support Lazarus House.

EVENT DATE: August 1st – 31st        REGISTRATION OPEN: July 10th – 31st
