WHEATON—Before heading off to Mass Sept. 9 at St. Petronille Parish in Glen Ellyn, three members of the Repking family took a 5 kilometer run and helped the homeless in DuPage County. Standing alongside her 6-year-old and 9-year-old sons, Liz Repking said, “It’s all about the family.”
Many youngsters and their parents were among the 400 participants in the third annual PADS Run/Walk, featuring a 10 K run, 5 K run and 3 K walk. They assisted people in crisis by participating in an event that raised over $61,000 for DuPage Public Actions to Deliver Shelter.
