Countdown to Race Day — See you Thanksgiving Morning

The Grove Express 5K 

The Grove Express Foundation invites the public to participate in the 2023 Grove Express 5K Run/Walk to benefit education and youth programs.

In 2021, three local organizations partnered together to carry forward the important tradition of a Thanksgiving Day Run/Walk — a staple for so many families around Downers Grove. Representatives from the Education Foundation of Downers Grove District 58, the Rotary Club of Downers Grove, and the Roadrunners Soccer Club formed the Grove Express Foundation to uphold the mission of investing in education, youth programs, and scholarships in our community.
