Miles For Music 5K & 10K Run

5K Walk


This race is a benefit race for the Music Department at Lincoln Way East High School. The race is sponsored by the LWE Music Boosters, a parent/community support group that serves as a resource for the music department. It is through the efforts of the music boosters that various avenues for participation are made available to our students. To ensure that LWE High School programs excel, the boosters provide moral, financial and physical support whenever it is required.
