DuPage PADS is calling all walkers and runners, individuals and families to the tenth Annual Run 4 Home, beginning at 8 a.m. Sept. 6, at 703 W. Liberty, Wheaton. This 10K and 5K CARA approved is designed for serious runners, casual joggers and walkers.

Fundraising for this event will help provide critical support services to families and individuals who are homeless in DuPage County. Open 365 days a year, the agency’s solution to ending homelessness is providing housing, coupled with support services and employment.
