The Downers Grove South High School Key Club is hosting its annual Mustang Trot 5K Run/Walk to benefit Honor Flight Chicago on Sunday, April 10 at South High School. 

Race registration for adults is $25 and students are $20. Race participants can register online or by mailing in a form to South High Key Club by Thursday, April 7. Walk-in registration will be available on race day, from 8-8:45 a.m., for $30, regardless of participant’s age. If a community member does not want to participate in the run/walk, they can still make a donation to Honor Flight Chicago. The race begins at 9 a.m. with packet pick-up and registration starting at 8 a.m.

Community members are invited to participate and raise money for Honor Flight Chicago. This organization honors our beloved veterans by providing a Day of Honor trip to Washington, D.C. to visit the WWII, the Korean War and Vietnam War memorials. Thanks to donations, the trip is provided at no cost to the veteran and is intended as a heartfelt thank you for their service and sacrifice from a grateful nation.

“We look forward to hosting our walk/run event for the first time in two years,” says Amy Klug, South High Counselor and Key Club adviser. “It is an honor to hold this event to bring our community together and raise money for a worthy cause.”

The Mustang Trot race will begin and end on Norfolk Street near the visitor parking lot at South High School. Pre and Post-race festivities will take place in the Large Gym, which can be accessed by the West Events Entrance.
