Team IPEF Sign-Up… It's about more than just running. Challenge yourself to be part of something big in 2018. Consider signing up for Team IPEF and running in the 6th Annual Healthy Driven Naperville Half Marathon as a charity partner. Team IPEF offers a unique opportunity to run for a cause and make a difference for your school. Last year 335 runners raised more than $178,000 to help enrich education in all 33 of our District 204 schools. Runners commit to raise a minimum of $204 for 204 as they train and complete the half marathon or 5K on Sunday, October 21, 2018. All charity runners receive a discount off race registration and get to choose a District 204 school they would like to represent. Visit to learn more or sign-up.
