Event description

Description

One of the goals in the run/walk is to encourage the community to come together and get to
know each other in a relaxed atmosphere. The second goal is to help raise money which will
be divided between two separate funds:

*Jon Callaghan Memorial Fund

*Gurnee Community Church Youth Work Camp


Jon Callaghan was a student at O’Plaine School in Gurnee, who passed away in 1997
after a courageous battle with neuroblastoma cancer. Per the Callaghan family, the
funds raised have been used to help Comer Children’s Memorial Hospital Cancer Research,
School District 56 Program for Learning Disabled, and many others.


Each year the Gurnee Community Church Youth Mission Trip participants raise funds for
international and domestic trips including the Many Hands Project (MHP). The MHP serves
underprivileged Lake County homeowners by doing home repairs and yard work and building
wheel chair ramps and beds.


Any donations would be appreciated and sponsorship is welcome. Participation in the
walk/run is encouraged. Please make checks payable to the Gurnee Turkey Trot and mail
to Gurnee Turkey Trot, 325 North O’Plaine Road, Gurnee, Illinois 60031.


If you have any questions, please contact Commander William Meyer (billjm@police.gurnee.il.us)
847.599.7064 at the Gurnee Police Department.
