Nicor Gas is hosting the inaugural 811 5K Run on Sunday, November 11th, 2018. The 811 Run’s focus is to increase public awareness about safe digging practices and spread the word about how easy it is to make the call to 811 to keep you and your community safe. Remember to always “Know What’s Below. Call Before You Dig”.
This USATF Certified 5K will take place in Skokie, IL, beginning and ending at 4901 Searle Parkway. The participant cost is $8.11 with 100% of the proceeds going to United Way of Metro Chicago.
Nicor Gas is proud of a long association with the United Way which began in 1954 and continues today. There are 26 United Way chapters in the Nicor Gas service territory that fund more than 1,000 health and human service agencies throughout northern Illinois. United Way of Metro Chicago fights for the health, education, financial stability and safety of every person in every neighborhood across the Chicago region.
