[ARCHIVED] St. Jude Race To The Flag 5K Sets 2013 Goals

Village of Westmont
Date Issued: March 12, 2013

The 2013 Race To The Flag 5K is set for Sunday, May 26 at Ty Warner Park. This will be the fourth year for the event that benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and the committee is hoping for their best year ever.

In 2013, the Race Committee is hoping to raise $15,000 and have 500 race participants. “Each year, the event gets bigger and better,” says Race To The Flag Committee Chair Mike Ramsey, “but this year, we’ve really set a high bar for ourselves in regard to fundraising goals. With support from the community, I think we can do it.”

The Race To The Flag Committee consists of community volunteers and members of the Village of Westmont Health & Wellness Committee. The committee meets throughout the year to plan and execute the event. The race begins near Ty Warner Park and travels through the Oakwood Subdivision. The race is for all ages and all levels of skill. Runners and walkers are invited.

All proceeds go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The mission of St. Jude’s is to find cures for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases through research and treatment. And no family ever pays St. Jude for anything.

To support this important cause and sign up as a race participant, or to learn more about becoming a sponsor, visit the Race To The Flag website at or call 630-878-4507.
