The Bob Emig Foundation is once again partnering with Father McGivney Catholic High School to host its sixth annual Halloween 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, Oct. 31 at 8 a.m. to benefit the athletics program at Father McGivney. This fun-filled family event will be held on Father McGivney’s new campus in Glen Carbon at 7190 Bouse Road.

There is something for everyone at the 5K run/walk with awards for the top three male and female runners and the top three places in seven age categories. There will also be a pumpkin painting activity, trick-or-treating, and a short fun-run (awards for all participants) for all kids in attendance. Performance T-shirts are included in the registration fee. Food, drinks, great music, and a raffle will follow the fun-run. The deadline for early registration is Sunday, Oct. 11.

The event is designed to be family-oriented and will include informational booths from area organizations.
