The REALTOR® Association of the Fox Valley (RAFV) partnered with St. Charles area schools to donate more than 150 pairs of new or gently used running shoes last week to the Summer Running Club for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Elgin.
Fox Valley members are also providing incentives for children who participate in the running program, such as water bottles and T-shirts. At the end of the summer, boys and girls who run in a 5K race will go on a shopping trip with RAFV members to purchase new shoes, reports RAFV Director of Communications and Social Media Lisa Ayres.
A recent article in the Kane County Chronicle featured RAFV members Julie Kellenberger, Tracey Carlstedt, Diana Denton Szmurlo and Betty Ebert-Rylko.
The partnership between RAFV and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Elgin is an example of ways that local Illinois REALTOR® associations are supporting the partnership between the National Association of REALTORS® and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
