5KBC Race and Wellness Expo

After a three year hiatus ... with the initiative and partner offer from Brian Taylor, Director of Recreation/Mt. Prospect Park District (MPPD); the Mount Prospect Chamber of Commerce (MPCC) was proud to bring back a Wellness event while promoting Mount Prospect’s unique Kensington Business Center. Northwest Community Healthcare’s Director of Development Kathi Grummel jumped on board immediately.

Seven months of planning and great efforts – a solid team including MPPD Fitness Manager Dee Ford and MPCC staff member Meghan Brickley. Many showed up to run, volunteers and staff standing by, our timer and equipment was on site thanks to the MPPD and our awesome Public Works crew ... we were ready!

This event was rich in preparation though cut short (as in ‘cancelled’ an hour before RACE TIME ...) due to the only thing not in our control ... WEATHER!
