As we approach our 9th year of the Wheaton Lions Charities Reindeer Run 5K, the Wheaton Lions Charity Club finds itself in a new time, but still with the same charge and an even more important mission to support the charitable organizations we serve. Each year this race draws over 1,000 participants to spread holiday cheer throughout the streets of downtown Wheaton. The Wheaton Lions Club has been serving the Wheaton community for over the past 95 years and dedicates their efforts to their “Pillars of Service”: a focus on efforts in sight, hearing, diabetes, hunger, environment and pediatric cancer. Over the past three years Wheaton Lions Charities has been able to raise over $75,000 annually to support these efforts as well as many other local social service agencies from money raised through charity events like the Reindeer Run.
