The Running Down a Dream event, formerly known as Run Across Illinois, has been the signature fundraiser for Cross Countries from the beginning. This event is a relay run starting in Clinton, Iowa and continuing all the way across the state of Illinois back to Oak Lawn! There are 5 legs of participants spanning the width of the state. Someone will be running non-stop during the 24 hours it takes to complete the run. There will be upwards of 75 participants that complete this state-wide relay run. This event is enjoyed by all that take part in it. It is a unique experience and is a fun way for our group to accomplish it's ultimate goal, to get to Bolivia, thus the new name, Running Down a Dream.
