CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Watch out for runners and walkers this Saturday May 19th just southeast of downtown Arlington Heights in the Scarsdale neighborhood. The race starts at 8:00 a.m at the northeast corner of Pine Avenue and George Street and ends near Belmont Avenue and George Street.

The walking course is roughly bounded by Pine Avenue by Rockwell Street by Beverly Lane and by Lynden Lane.

The running course is roughly bounded by Pine Avenue by Orchard Avenue by Beverly Lane/Lincoln Lane and by Davis Street/George Street.


Race officials are looking for a little help at a corner or two for Marshals to direct the runners/walkers. Of course there are still openings, if anyone wants to join in; it’s a 2.62 mile walk and an 8k (4.97 mile) run…for a good cause. Day of Race Registration ends promptly at 7:45 a.m.

Event Host & Purpose
Northwest Road Runners, Inc. (www.nwroadrunners.org) is a local running club that was established this past summer for the purpose of organizing a kid’s running race in Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs. The goal of Northwest Road Runners, Inc. is to get kids (and their parents) interested in running as a healthy lifestyle choice, not just for this year, but for the rest of their lives. We are a non-profit 501(c)3 charity which will distribute funds raised back to the schools of the participant’s choice to fund activities that encourage wellness.

Childhood Obesity Statistics:
Only 4% of children between the ages of 6 and 11 were considered overweight in a 1971-1974 survey, while 18.8% of children at this age were overweight in a more recent 2003-2004 survey.

Participating in at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity on most days can help a child maintain a healthy weight.

More than one or two hours of screen time (TV, computers, video games) each day is a risk factor for childhood obesity.

Overweight teenagers have a 70% chance of becoming overweight adults.
Less than one third of adults are at a healthy weight.
