Share The Warmth

Imagine playing telephone from friend to

friend, outside, in the dead of winter.





And anyone in Oak Park and River Forest knows we like to talk about what we love about our towns.


Share The Warmth is a relay race where runners pass along stories instead of batons.

Watch the event live on Facebook or brave the cold and cheer on the runners.

Join us as we run through our communities to spread the love!


On Sunday, March 19, 2017, join the Oak Park River-Forest Community Foundation in our first annual Share The Warmth Relay Race! Share The Warmth was inspired by a great Oak Park & River Forest tradition of sharing stories about our beautiful towns! The race our way of raising funds for for the great non-profits that serve OP&RF.

Share your pictures and videos from great moments in our towns on on Facebook and Instagram using #ShareTheWarmthOPRF. You might wind up on our website or social streams.
