The John Herman team of Hometown Real Estate is pleased to announce their sponsorship of the first Shady Hill 5K race to benefit the Misericordia center of Chicago. This 5K race will take runners along the beautiful Fox River and around the Shady Hill and Barrington Harbor neighborhoods located in Barrington, Illinois. Participants can opt to run or walk this 5K (3.1-mile) course or select the alternative 2K (1.24-mile) fun race, which makes one large loop around the Shady Hill community.
The Shady Hill 5K benefit was organized and created by a local teenager Ian Fournie’s desire to show support for his former classmate and friend, Alex Bronton. Alex is a 16-year old boy, who previously resided in Lake Barrington Shores, and is currently living at the Misericordia complex in Chicago, Illinois. He has Cerebral Palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. Ian’s Fournie’s support for Alex by sponsoring this first ever Shady Hill 5K Run/Walk is a wonderful example of how caring can and will make a difference.
Ian Fournie is a 14-year old resident of the Shady Hill community and a cross-country runner at Barrington High School. He met Alex while they both attended Barrington Middle School, Station Campus, and the two quickly became friends. They have remained friends and often communicate through phones calls or over Skype, and are able to meet in-person several times a year. The proceeds from the first Shady Hill 5K Run/Walk will go to support Misericordia, the very organization that provides Alex with the life-changing supportive services he requires. Misericordia is a not-for-profit organization that operates in Chicago, Illinois. This organization provides vital supportive services to people in the area who have mild to severe developmental disabilities. It is a 501(c)(3) organization that has been in operation since 1921. Its 31-acre campus provides services for up to 600 children and adults in the greater Chicago area. The main goal of the organization is to provide the services necessary to allow residents with developmental disabilities to lead a life with maximum independence.
Thanks again to John Herman Team for Sponsoring the Shady Hill 5K Charity Run/Walk to Benefit Misericordia.
