Deadline nears for lakefront polio race


Just a few days are left to register in advance for the Evanston Lighthouse Rotary Club's Race to End Polio 5K run and walk along the lakefront.

Race proceeds will support the Rotary Foundation’s global polio initiatives, which have raised over $1 billion in the effort to eradicate the crippling disease.

On site registration starts at 6 a.m. on April 15 at Campus Drive and Sheridan Road. The on-site registration fee is $25, three dollars more than for advance registrations.
