Run to support the arts in Arlington Heights

March 25, 2014 by  

The Metropol Trot Red Carpet Run is taking place shortly Arlington Heights. It acts as a fundraising event for the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre.

Participants are encouraged to dress up as their favorite character from stage, screen, or TV for the run. There will be three choices of races – 5K, 10K, and a one-mile family walk. Registration fees for all three are $30 in advance for adults or $35 on the day of the race, and $10 in advance for children and $15 on the day. All participants will receive a T-shirt, and breakfast will be served at Peggy Kinnane’s, which will donate 10% of each bill to the Metropolis.

The top male and female runners will receive prizes of two tickets to a show at the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre and a gift certificate. Those who raise $200 or more in pledges will also receive two free tickets.

The runs begin at Highland Avenue and Campbell Street. No doubt organizers will hand banners to mark the start of the run. Banners and other printed materials for such events are often supplied by Arlington Heights printing companies.

The Metropol Trot Red Carpet Run will take place on April 6 from 8:00 am – 11:00 am. For more information, or to find out about registering as a participant, call 847-577-5982.
