Have you ever done a transatlantic race? Here’s your chance to participate in one virtually and help raise money for a great cause organized by Rejoice’s very own Gry and Tormod Larsen. Local runners and walkers are welcome to join the 5K race Aug. 18 in the LeRoy Oaks Forest Preserve.  At the same time, participants in the Larsen’s home country of Norway will run and walk there!

The 5K is raising money for the Kristoffer Larsen BIG HEART Foundation, which is dedicated to preventing sudden cardiac death in youth while honoring the memory of the Larsen’s son.  Their son, Kristoffer, passed away from an undetected heart condition in 2016.
