9th Annual Annie Ryan Fun Run on May 18

Former Illinois Attorney General Jim Ryan and his wife Marie are hosting the 9th Annual Annie Ryan Run; it will take place on Sunday, May 18 in Elmhurst. Annie was the youngest of the couple's six children, she died of a brain tumor in 1997.

I participated in the event a few years ago. The distance is 5 kilometers (3.1 miles), and there is a one-mile fun run for kids. I'll be out of town so I'll have to miss this year's event.

Proceeds from the race will benefit the Midwest Children's Brain Tumor Center at Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge.

I'm proud to use my 5000th post to promote this event.
