Thank you for your patience as we carefully evaluated guidelines and recommendations from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention and state and local officials surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the 2020 Mike Hike 5K Event. After careful consideration, we have decided to host this year's Mike Hike virtually from Monday, Oct 17- Nov 11. While we are disappointed we will not be able be together this year, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our participants and community.

The Mike Hike 5K Run/Walk is an annual event honoring PFC Michael Olivieri. The friends and family of Mike Olivieri have joined forces with the Homer Glen Foundation to preserve the memory of this hometown hero who tragically lost his life while serving in Iraq on June 6, 2011. Proceeds raised through this event will commemorate our local heroes while supporting improvements to our community trails and parks. Previous Mike Hikes have funded the Michael C. Olivieri Memorial Garden, the Hiawatha Trail Extension, the Homer Glen Foundation Heroes Trail Bench and the Heroes Trail Mile Marker Posts. Event organizers plan to use proceeds from this year's event to fund a Veterans Plaza.
