On behalf of Painters District Council No. 30 and the PATCH Foundation, we'd like to thank those who made it to our 7th annual PATCH Run with the Lion 5k on Sunday, September 11th, in Aurora, Illinois. Unfortunately, the race was cancelled due to thunderstorms in the area - it was such a tough decision to make, but the safety of our runners and their families always comes first.
Even though the race did not take place, the impact of this event still holds strong. 100% of event proceeds were still donated to the PATCH Foundation, which provides financial support to organizations that support and protect children in need throughout our local community. Together, we raised $42,150 for the PATCH Foundation - a new record high for this event! Thank you for supporting our cause, registering to run, and sponsoring our event.
We are proud to bring this event to our community, and we look forward to hosting this event for years to come. Stay tuned for 2023 event date announcements!
