A Run for the Trees fun run event will be held Saturday, Sept. 24, at Jorgens Park Preserve in Scandinavia.
Participants can walk or run a .5K distance or the two-mile trail course. Race packets will be available from 10 a.m. until the 11 a.m. start time.
The cost is $20 or $15 for ages 12 and under. Those who preregister by Sept. 16 will receive a brown or green T-shirt.

All proceeds from the event will go toward the purchase of five- to eight-foot trees for planting at Jorgens Park Preserve.
After the event, all children participating are invited to Silver Lake Lanes for a free game of bowling. Other participants can take advantage of an offer of ‘buy one, get one free’ soda or beer at Silver Lake Lanes.
