Cross Country was one of Kelli O'Laughlin's favorite sports when she was in middle school. In her name and her memory, the Kelli Joy O'Laughlin Foundation is hosting its 11th annual Run For Kelli. This year to celebrate the 11th annual event we are doing a virtual run and walk.
Kelli was a freshman at Lyons Township High School when her life was taken by a burglar in her home. Kelli's family and much of the community come together to remember her, celebrate her life, and raise money for her foundation.
Virtual Run For Kelli offers a 5K Run or 1 Mile Walk!
For 2022 Run For Kelli is virtual, you can run any 5K course you enjoy. Even if you're in another state, it's OK, join us virtually supporting the Foundation, getting in shape, and celebrating Kelli's memory! Just make sure you complete your virtual 5k before the end of our event on October 31st! Virtual Run For Kelli offers runners the ability to upload their times to our event website. You can see how you fared compared to all runners and runners in your age group too! No prizes for age category or overall winners for virtual participants this year.
We invite all our virtual runners and walkers to wear Run For Kelli attire from this year or previous years, take some fun photos or action shots, and upload them to our event website.
Run For Kelli Also Offers Peer-to-Peer Fundraising!
We are often asked how people can help or do more to help our cause and one easy way is fundraising on behalf of the KJO Foundation. For the seventh year in a row, we're offering Individual or Group fundraising online, which allows our very passionate participants to get their families and friends involved! During the registration process, please set up an individual fundraising page or join a team to raise more together!
