Shining Star gears up for annual walk
DIXON – Caped crusaders soon will suit up for the annual Shining Star Champions for Children walk.
The 3-mile walk begins at 10 a.m. June 8 at Lowell Park; proceeds benefit the Shining Star Children’s Advocacy Center. Superhero costumes are encouraged.
Registration is $20 for 18 and older and $10 for those 17 and younger if paid before May 17; it is $25 for adults after May 17.
Each participant will receive a T-shirt, while youth can choose a shirt or a superhero cape. Capes also can be purchased for $10.
The walk will be followed by a free lunch, music, face painting and other activities, and there will also be a Kids’ Villain Chase in which two batches of youngsters can chase after villains in short-distance races, then hand the culprits over to Dixon police.
Registration forms are available online or at the race. Call 815-284-1891, go to shiningstarcaccom.racedirector.com or find Shining Star Children’s Advocacy Center on Facebook for all the details.
