Metamora Fields Golf Course
801 Progress St.
Metamora, IL 61548
309-698-9736
http://www.peoria.life/runforlife5k

The course runs through this scenic new golf course and is all paved and much flatter than the old Bradley Park course. This makes for fast times for the runners and a very enjoyable time for those who choose to walk the course. In addition, the course is very accommodating for small children and parents who wish to push their infants in strollers. And, of course, everyone will be eligible for the pie drawing!

 

The registration fee for adults is $20 until July 29, after which it will be to $25 through race day. The fee for children 12 and under is $12 through July 29, and $15 after that.  There is $5 discount for participants in the IVS Grand Prix series.  Participants will again have the option of raising pledges in lieu of the entry fee. This is a great way to raise money for the Right To Life cause!

18th Annual West Side Block Party (Sat. Aug 13, 2016 10:00 am - 2:00 pm)

Contact Info:

Bloomington First Christian Church
401 West Jefferson St.
Bloomington, IL 61701
jerobinson21409@yahoo.com

Local churches are continuing the nearly two-decade-old tradition of bringing health services, school resources, and pre-back-to-school entertainment to the community.

 

Each year, the block party distributes more than 1,000 school kits to students grades K through 8, helping save local families the often-significant cost of purchasing semester supplies. In addition, the annual event provides toothbrushes, floss, and free dental and health checks.

 

In addition to hotdogs and other refreshments, the event will feature carnival games and musical performances. 

 

Planned participants in the block party will include area human services agencies and non-profit groups, the Miller Park Zoo and the Humane Society of Central Illinois (both weather permitting), and Bloomington Fire and Police Departments. The Book Bike also will be onsite, with a book giveaway, along with face painting by the Zoo Lady, a raffle for kids’ bikes, FunBelievable Balloons, a bounce house, a cake walk, and an incline wall from Upper Limits.
