The 2013 Lions Club Reindeer Run through downtown Wheaton was held on Saturday, December 7. Close to 600 runners braved the cold and participated in the 5K run which is a CARA Emerging Race on a USATF certified course. The race was hosted by the Wheaton Lions Club in conjunction with the Wheaton Park District. Money raised by the Lions Club is donated to help people with sight and hearing disabilities and organizations that help people with sight and hearing problems. The Wheaton Park District uses its share of the profits to help maintain the DuPage County Museum.
The Park District opened up the Museum for the runners to sign in and to warm up before and after the race. Refreshments were donated by Whole Foods and Culligan Water Treatment.
The first place male runner was Daniel Woldesilossie and the first place female runner was Amanda Wendorff.
The Wheaton Lions Club recently celebrated its 90th anniversary as a local Lions Club.
