Orland Township’s Illumin8K is an eight-kilometer walk/run to raise awareness about suicide prevention. The event begins 7 p.m. Saturday at the Orland Township Administrative Offices, 14807 S. Ravinia Ave.
On Sunday, the Erin’s AAIM for Change 5K Walk/Run will go on starting 8:30 a.m. The event is to raise awareness about the dangers of drunk driving, and it also raises money for both deterrent efforts and scholarships for college from the Erin Olmstead Foundation.
