Legs for Literacy

It's not too late to sign-up for the Cabrini Green Tutoring Program's Legs for Literacy 5K run and walk this Sunday, May 16 at 9am. The course takes you through scenic Lincoln Park near Diversey Harbor and the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. The entry fee is $25 pre-race or $30 on race day, plus a new or gently used children's book. All proceeds benefit this 43-year-old, after-school tutoring program.
