The young, the old and some nuns took to the streets of the South Elgin subdivision of Thornwood Sunday morning for the third annual Run For The Nuns 5K Run/Walk.

The race raises money for several religious orders of nuns and the Healing Medical Mission that serves the people of Guatemala. This year the race collected around $2,500 from the roughly 150 race participants.

The race is part of the larger Here I am Lord conference at St. Patrick Catholic Church in St. Charles.

The winner of this years race was Pol Nabben of South Elgin, who finished with a time of 15:50.

Race director Christine Kmiec was glad for the mild weather and good turnout.
