Christmas Sweater 5K Shuffle


Sunday, December 7th at 7:30 AM

We will be open during the Shuffle.

Dig deep into the closet or drawer for your special sweater to share on the streets of Glen Ellyn with your fellow neighbors and friends. If you don’t have a holiday sweater for the occasion, use your festive imagination to inspire and create a masterpiece to wear as you shuffle through downtown, around Lake Ellyn, and Glenbard West High School.
