It’s that time again!  It’s the 10th Annual Tom Heighway Rock N’ Roll (or  Stroll.) Everyone is welcomed to join in for a morning of exercise through the streets of Glen Ellyn, with all proceeds going to a GREAT cause. Each year 100% of the funds raised are given away in college scholarships to Glenbard Students who have lost a parent.

Tom Heighway was just like someone we all know. He was a father, a brother, a husband, an uncle, a soccer volunteer coach, basement musician, and a friend. Diagnosed with Leukemia in February 2003, Tom tragically passed away a short time later at the age of 50. To help keep his memory alive, his family organized a 5k run / walk with local students in mind. Since its creation, the event has raised and given away over $48,000 in college scholarships.

So if you are planning your fall run schedule, looking for a worthy cause to get involved with, or simply want to get out and exercise on a Saturday morning, mark you calendars for September 21st @8:00 a.m. beginning in the parking lot across form St. Petronelle’s Church, between Main St and Glenwood Ave just North of Hillside Ave.

We at Equity Insurance Agency, Inc. invite you to become involved as a sponsor, runner, walker, volunteer, or spectator, and come out and join us for this very worthy cause….Young Minds. We can “Insure” you will have a Great Time.
