Bolingbrook Park District Introduces Parkie Cares Virtual 5K to Raise Money for AMITA Heath Foundation

Bolingbrook Park District cares about our community and all the heroes that have been working on the front lines. Because we care, we thought of a way that can keep you healthy and active, but also help those working so hard to take care of us.  We are proud to introduce the Parkie Cares Virtual 5K. You can run, walk, roll, crawl, or hop a 5K and help us raise money for the AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center, Bolingbrook Foundation.
