WATERMAN – The Waterman Lions Club will hold its sixth annual Gobbler Gallop 5K walk/run on Saturday, Nov. 17.

The event begins at 9 a.m. at Waterman Elementary School. Packet pickup and same-day registration begins at 7:30 a.m.

Each participant will receive a Gobbler Gallop T-Shirt. Last year, more than 350 people participated and enjoyed post-event festivities, including refreshments, post-race awards to top finishers, and a post-race raffle of gift certificates and items donated by area businesses.

Proceeds from the event will help to fund Waterman Lions Club projects and programs. Last year’s funds were donated to the Waterman Boy Scouts, Open Hands Preschool, NICE, Waterman Heritage Society, Waterman Elementary Parents Association, Waterman Lions Club Scholarships and Kishwaukee College Assistive Resources Center, to name a few.

Early registration is $20. Same-day registration is $25. Registration forms are available at www.gobblergallop5k.com and at Waterman Village Hall. Online registration is also available at racetime.info.
