The Northlake Friendly 5K Run/Walk took place on Sunday, September 29th.  Many local residents as well as neighboring friends and family enjoyed the perfect fall weather. The run path took runners through our beautiful Midland Trail utilizing West Leyden and Center Point Park. Individuals from all fitness levels, first timers to experienced runners, and families participated.

Local Northlake residents and event organizers Virginia DeSantis and Angela Borges raised $1000 for the Northlake Police Memorial Fund. The fund’s purpose is to erect a statue of a police officer near the newly built police station. The statue was chosen by the residents of the City of Northlake in a city-wide vote as a lasting memory dedicated to officers who have died in the line of duty. A number of Northlake officers where volunteers and were highly appreciative of Virginia and Angela as well as our local support for this project.

If you wish to donate towards this worth project please contact the Northlake Police Department.
