Every spring, the streets come alive with joggers sporting protective chinbeards strapped on tightly beneath aerodynamic stovepipe hats. Amble with an assembly of Honest Abes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one entry to Mr. Lincoln's Neighborhood 5K Run/Walk on May 7 beginning at 9 a.m. at Lincoln State Park (a $20 value). The proceeds from this event benefit the Friends of Lincoln State Park, the Department of Natural Resources, and the Lincoln Amphitheatre.
Celebrate the second annual 5K run/walk through the lush, rolling hills and thick vernal woodlands of Lincoln State Park. Winding through most of the park's scenic pathways, this Lincoln-jog traverses the man's boyhood hills, where, from the ages of 7 to 21, he mastered oratory at the price of shaving skills. The money raised by this event supports the DNR, Friends of Lincoln State Park, the wardens of this historic parcel, and funding toward the park's amphitheatre programs. Learn about upcoming commemorative events on the theater's Facebook page. Event T-shirts will be available while supplies last or until a John Wilkes Booth impersonator fires the starter pistol at 9 a.m. CDT.
