Due to order of the Governor of Illinois and our QPS Superintendent regarding the COVID-19 virus, all school events with participation over 250 people are required to be canceled until May 1. Unfortunately, our Dream Big in Color 5K Fun Run falls into that category. We have determined that due to scheduling difficulties, it will be best to cancel our run this year. Existing registrations will be refunded. Our highest priority is the safety of our participants and compliance with state and federal directives to keep our community safe. Thank you for your patience and support.
