The 2nd annual PATCH Run with the Lion 5K was this past weekend, and it was an absolute blast. Adults and kids alike raced all over Blackberry Farm in Aurora, IL to help support the Painters & Allied Trades for Children’s Hope (PATCH) Foundation. We donated all race proceeds directly to the foundation, and we’re thrilled to say we raised $36,000 this year!

150 total people ran in the 5K and the 0.75-mile Little Lions race. This event is officially an annual tradition, so look for details on next year’s race later in 2018 so we can continue to grow this event.

“We enjoyed getting out and doing something fun and active with our teams and families for such a great cause,” said Ryan Anderson, Business Manager/Secretary-Treasurer of PDC 30.

We owe a massive thank you to all participants, sponsors and to Blackberry Farm for being such a gracious host. Thank you for the great race day!
