- September 9, 2017
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
First of all let me thank you for supporting Child Initiative International by giving your time to walk/run in the 2017 Take Initiative 5K. As you may know, this event is a major fund raising endeavor for a cause that is vital to the quality of life for children both local and in Uganda, Africa.
The walk is September 9, 2017 at 10:00 AM until completed and is held at Kiddieland Park near the intersection of Appleton Rd. and Lincoln Ave. in Belvidere, Illinois. Park is along the scenic Kishwaukee River and we recommend a camera for those who like to take pictures. There will be signs posted on the walk route to guide you around. Coffee, juice and snacks will be provided.
Walker have two options:
Walkers can download a Sponsorship sheet Take Initiative form to fill in and gather pledges. All pledged money is due the day of the 5K. All checks should be made out to CII which is a 501c3 organization. All donations are tax deductible. PLEASE BE SURE TO GET AN ADDRESS FOR EACH DONATION. WE CAN NOT SEND A CHARITABLE TAX LETTER WITHOUT ONE.
Walkers can come and enjoy but we only ask for a donation of $20.
Our goal is for 100 Walkers/Runners to raise $100 each. As always, our ultimate goal is $10,000, which takes care of all the needs in our African orphanages and schools along with the needs of the children we help here in Illinois. We will walk rain or shine. Should it be a light rain, bring a rain coat. As September is cool we recommend a light jacket or sweats. The walk will be called off and rescheduled in the event of lightening or extreme down pour of rain only.
We will have a prize for the walker who raises the most money.
Please review, print, sign and bring a copy of the EVENT WAIVER 2017 with you on the day of the event.
Thank you again for your dedication to Child Initiative International and a great time of fun.
