The 2nd annual Gelfand Gallop is an exciting community color powder run that supports the Debra Gelfand Children's Foundation. Taking place on Sunday, September 17th at Richard E. John’s Park in Glenview, this event is a fun-filled family fundraiser benefiting The Debra Gelfand Children’s Foundation. Participants will have the opportunity to experience a vibrant and energetic run, as they get covered from head to toe in safe, food-grade, biodegradable cornstarch colors. By the time they reach the finish line, they will be adorned in a stunning array of warm and cool hues. Runners can choose between a one or two-mile course, and there is even a 50-yard mini-dash for children ages five and under! All participants will receive a t-shirt and a “goodie bag”. In the event of inclement weather, the Gelfand Gallop will be rescheduled to October 1, 2023. The first color dash will start at 8:30am, with check-in opening at 7:45am. The second color dash will begin at 10:30am, with check-in opening at 9:45am. Additionally, there will be a mini-dash at 8:30am prior to the start of the first color dash, exclusively for children aged five and under. Register by August 31st to secure your t-shirt, as after that date, t-shirts will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. T-shirt pickup will be held on Friday, September 15th at Hoffman School in Glenview. Don't miss out on this incredible event that combines fitness, fun, and philanthropy!
