North Grove school holds family fun run

North Grove Elementary School is hosting a 1K-5K run called the North Grove Groove at 9 a.m. Saturday at 850 Republic Ave., Sycamore.

This is the school’s inaugural, all-inclusive family event. This event is not a fundraiser for the school, but instead was created to promote health and wellness in the community. This fun run is open to all members of the community.

The course is a 1K course. It will begin in the North Grove parking lot, and will follow the path around the school and continue on through Sycamore Creek Subdivision. Participants can choose to only run 1K or continue the course and run 2K, 3K, and all the way to 5K. Those who run more laps will receive more raffle tickets.

All registrants will receive a “groovy” shirt, and there will be a DJ, refreshments and raffles as well. For full course and registration information visit the North Grove Groove Facebook page. Online registration is open at or call North Grove for questions at 815-899-8124.
