Groovin' In The Grove

      On Saturday, May 08, 2010, the Sports Medicine Club of Midwestern University in Downers Grove, Illinois will be holding the 21st Annual Groovin' in the Grove 5K Run/Walk. In addition to the 5K RunlWalk, there is a children’s event which includes a 1K run for older children and a 100-yard dash for the toddlers. We are anticipating over 500 adults and children for the 2010 race. The race is organized and directed by student volunteers with help of Midwestern faculty, staff, and administration. 

     The race proceeds will be donated to the DuPage County Public Action to Deliver Shelter (PADS) for the homeless. Student volunteers have been very successful in raising donations in recent years. The success of this event depends on the support of the community and local patrons. With your monetary or in-kind donation, we will be able to carry on the tradition of bringing our community together while raising money and awareness for a remarkable organization.
