Palmer Superhero Fun Run & Walk

  • Palmer Elementary School 5051 North Kenneth Avenue Chicago, IL, 60630 United States (map)

Join us and cheer on our Superhero students as they run and walk to raise money for Palmer Elementary School! Each students will be raising money from friends and family to help us reach our goal of $10,000.

Next year the school is facing cuts of approx. $134,000 in its operating budget.

Due to this shortfall, at risk are programs like our partnerships with:

  • Joffrey Ballet

  • Smiling Strings Orchestra

  • Merit School of Music

Friends of Palmer is looking to raise $10,000 to protect and continue to be able to offer these valuable programs to our students.

Ask friends and family to help support you and your school!
