Race and Charity Info

Join us as Kopf Running presents the 4th Annual Huntley Fall Fest Run and Kids Dash as part of Huntley Fall Fest on Friday, Sept. 23rd, 2022! This year's event will include a sunset 2 mile run/walk on Friday night instead of the 5K on Saturday morning. We hope you enjoy this new structure to our race!

The race will once again benefit Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK), an organization committed to mobilizing school professionals, families and communities to take actions that lead to healthy eating, physical activity and healthier schools where kids thrive. Right here in Northern Illinois, in the school districts in our area benefit from the programs put into place by AFHK and its volunteers! AFHK helps create healthier schools by bringing all the members of a school community together and equipping them with the tools and resources they need to make change happen. The organization strives to take care of all the health aspects of children- physical, nutritional, and psychological. At the event and during online registration, we are collecting monetary donations for the AFHK (proceeds from entry fees also go to the organization)!
