Carl Sandburg Girls on the Run Club participate in A-May-Zing Mundelein
The Carl Sandburg Girls on the Run Club participated in the 26th Annual A-May-Zing Mundelein event to help senior citizens with household chores.
On this annual day of caring, residents throughout Lake County volunteer to help those who have difficulty completing household chores that include mowing lawns, cleaning gutters, washing windows and moving heavy objects.
"I'm proud of the girls for taking time on a Saturday morning to help out their neighbors. They all worked really hard and showed a great sense of community," said Suzanne Klosinski who advises the club along with Cathy Wentink, Kelsy Cain Nelson, Valeria Cardenas and Lea Adolphs.
For the last eight years, Girls on the Run have participated in A-May-Zing Mundelein.
“I like helping people in need, like elderly people who can't do it for themselves. That's what I'm here for,” said Brisett Lozano, an eighth-grade student at Carl Sandburg.
Girls on the Run is an all-girls program at Carl Sandburg that focuses on improving physical health, promoting healthy social habits and increasing self-esteem. Before the school year ends, the Girls on the Run club and coaches will run a 5K race on May 22.
