HUMAN RACE 2018

Sunday April 22, 2018 is a great day to support your community in the McHenry County Human Race.  The 5K walk/run takes place at McHenry County College and will support over 70 nonprofit organizations serving McHenry County.  This family friendly event begins at 8 AM.  Registration takes place at www.mchumanrace.org.  When individuals register they choose which organization will receive the proceeds from their race fee.  The race has a hero theme, so many racers come in costume.  About 1,000 participants are expected.  Volunteer Center McHenry County, host of the Human Race provides a total of $2,400 in cash prizes to participating charities.  For more information, call 815-344-4483
