On May 14 2022, we are hosting and celebrating the 12th Elim 5K! And this year we will be participating and celebrating together IN-PERSON. See below to learn how you can participate with the Elim community and show your ❤️ for Elim!
How do I register? Registration can be found on our 5K website. Simply complete the participant info and you’ll be good to go!
How do I get my participant T-shirt? T-shirts will be guaranteed for all participants registered online by April 4. We will do our best to get shirts to individuals who register after that date, but shirts are not guaranteed by race day. We will be sending a follow-up email stating how you will receive your shirt.
Can I still participate virtually? This year we are still offering a virtual option for those you might still want to participate in at home or out of state. Just select “virtual” during registration. We ask that those who wish to participate this way be registered by May 6, so we have time to get you your race packet.
If participating virtually, be sure to tune into our Facebook Live event (hyperlink to Facebook page) beginning 10 minutes before race time and please let us know you are participating by taking pictures and sharing those with us! You can post them directly to our Facebook 5K event page or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I raise funds? The easiest way to raise funds is to direct individuals to the 5K website (link). You can either send folks to donate to your specific participant page or they can simply donate to the event. Another option is to collect pledges using this Pledge Form. Once all donations are collected, they can be mailed to Elim along with the form.
Folks can also mail-in cash or check donations (checks made payable to Elim Christian Services) and note “Elim 5K” on the memo line or on an enclosed note. (checks can be mailed to Elim Christian Services, 13020 S Central Ave, Crestwood, IL 60418)
What if it rains on May 14? If it rains, or if rain is very likely forecasted, we will communicate any changes in the time schedule through an email to all registered participants and post an update on our Facebook page.
What if I have additional questions? Contact Lori at email@example.com or 708-293-6507.
