Why Run? The Lew Blond Memorial 5K honors the memory of Lew Blond, an exceptional Maple School teacher who dedicated his life to the applied arts. His impact on students, colleagues, and parents remains cherished. Proceeds from this event benefit ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) research through the Les Turner ALS Foundation, fund high school scholarships at Glenbrook North and Glenbrook South High Schools, and support special District 30 projects. Let’s run, remember, and make a difference!
