Take a bite out of crime October 27

-

The Naperville Crime Stoppers inaugural Running Scared 5K Costume Run and Walk is set to begin at 8AM Saturday, Oct. 27 to take a bite out of crime. Participants can run or walk, with or without costumes and the 5K is kid friendly.

Costumes are encouraged and many Halloween themed activities will complement the race. McGruff the Crime Dog will be present to cheer on runners. It is being held in coordination with National Crime Prevention Month which is every October.

The 5K is raising awareness for crime prevention, public safety and to inform citizens they can be rewarded for submitting anonymous tips that lead to arrests. Anyone at any time may submit a tip by calling the Naperville Crime Stoppers hotline at (630) 420-6006.

The registration cost for the 5K is $35 for adults and $25 for kids 12 and under. Racers are encouraged to register soon to receive an official race shirt. Visit www.crimestoppersrunningscared.com to register.

The start and finish is near St. Elizabeth Seton Church, 2220 Lisson Rd. in Naperville with parking in the lot adjacent to the church. It is suggested that racers arrive 30 minutes prior to the race start with costumes.

The Naperville Crime Stoppers is a crime prevention program geared toward public involvement in the fight against crime. It provides an avenue which permits and encourages citizens to contribute to the safety of the Naperville community.
