Set in the beautiful trails of Fox Mill, the 8th annual Fox Mill 5K & 1-Mile Color Run/Walk will honor a beloved resident, Kayla Lehmann, who passed away on April 7, 2018. Kayla was a St. Charles East freshman who was passionate about music, while also being an avid reader and gifted writer.

 

In keeping with the theme of giving back to our community, all proceeds will benefit Kayla’s Hope, a foundation which seeks to take away the stigma of depression and mental illness so that no one has to suffer in silence.

 

We invite all runners, walkers, and spectators to join us in honoring and remembering this beautiful young woman.   After the race, stay for awards, refreshments, and other fun family activities.

RACE RESULTS

Fox Mill 5K History

The first Fox Mill 5K took place in 2011 with the simple goal of getting neighbors together to meet one another while enjoying a fun activity on the beautiful trails of Fox Mill.

 

2015

A reason was put behind the race in 2015 & a 1-mile color run was added as we supported Fox Mill neighbor & cancer-fighter Tricia DePasquale. With all proceeds going to Fox Valley Food for Health, the attendance tried that year to 300 participants. Check out the photo gallery. 

 

2016

For the 6th annual Fox Mill event, the theme of giving back to our community continued with all the race proceeds benefiting The Cameron Pepera Memorial Foundation. Honoring Fox Mill resident Cameron Pepera, who passed away suddenly from epilepsy, participation nearly doubled to 550 runners & walkers in both races and over $25,000 was raised in Cameron's memory. Check out the photo gallery. 

 

2018

Last year's race honored Fox Mill resident, Mike White who was diagnosed with grade 4 brain cancer. He continues to fight with strength, hope, and determination. The proceeds benefitted the Northwestern Memorial Foundation. This foundation continues to advance treatments and hope of finding a cure for this terrible disease. Check out the photo gallery. 

 

2019

This year’s race will honor a beloved Fox Mill resident, Kayla Lehmann, who passed away on April 7, 2018. Kayla was a St. Charles East freshman who was passionate about music, while also being an avid reader and gifted writer.  She cherished her family and friends and had a beautiful way of seeing the good in everyone.

 

In keeping with the theme of giving back to our community, all proceeds will benefit Kayla’s Hope, a foundation created to give financial support to mental health organizations for research, treatment options, and education in schools. Additionally, Kayla’s Hope will annually provide scholarships to two high school graduates who are furthering their studies in music or literature at the college level. Ultimately, Kayla's Hope seeks to take away the stigma of depression and mental illness so that no one has to suffer in silence.

 

We invite the public to join us in honoring and remembering this beautiful young woman.  Runners, walkers and spectators are welcome! After the race, stay for awards, refreshments, and other fun family activities.
