We will be hosting our 3rd Annual Pant for the Pantry 5K Race on Sunday, October 20. The race will be held in midtown New Lenox with the start and finish lines at Old Plank Trail Community Bank, located at 280 Veterans Parkway.

The race will begin at 8:30 a.m., with an opening ceremony at 8 a.m. On-line registration can be accessed at www.pantforpantry.com. Race day registration will also be available from 6:45 – 8:15 a.m.

The annual Pant for the Pantry 5K is held to assist our local food pantry. Currently, the food pantry is experiencing record level demand each week. The food pantry does not operate on tax dollars, but solely on donations from the community. In 2012, the race saw over 370 participants of all ages from over 45 different cities and towns, plus many volunteers who came to help make the race a safe and fun experience for all. At the end of the race, we had two full truckloads of food items to donate to the New Lenox Township Food Pantry and were also able to donate $10,000 from various sponsors.
