THE EIU HOLIDAY HUSTLE RACE WILL BE HELD DEC. 3
The fifth annual Holiday Hustle 5K race will be held Dec. 3, 2016 to raise money for One Stop Community Christmas. Over 50 runners and walkers will begin the race at 9 a.m. in front of the Livingston C. Lord Administration Building, also known as Old Main, on EIU’s campus.
One Stop Community Christmas, the organization that receives the proceeds, provides toys, food, clothing and other items around the holiday season to families in Coles, Clark, Cumberland, Edgar, Shelby and Douglas counties. The Holiday Hustle raised $3,250 last year.
An awards ceremony and breakfast will follow the race, where the fastest runners in each of the three age groups will be awarded gift baskets and gift certificates.
Anyone can register for the race that morning for $25. Registration will begin at 8 a.m. in front of Old Main. Runners will receive a T-shirt, while supplies last. Anyone wishing to donate without participating in the race may do so through the Holiday Hustle website.
