Soccer alumni game, 5k run/walk planned in Carlinville

6 15 17

The third annual Carlinville Alumni Soccer Game will take place 4 p.m. Saturday, June 24 at the Loveless Park soccer fields.

Proceeds will go to the Carlinville Soccer Boosters.

Organizers last year had a men’s and a women’s game, and this year, depending on the interest, might be a co-ed game.

Those paying a $10 donation will receive a CHS alumni shirt. Concessions will be available by the soccer booster club.

5K run/walk

On Saturday, July 1, Advanced EyeCare in Carlinville, 615 N. Broad St., will host the Eye 5K run/walk, beginning at 9 a.m.

Proceeds support Student Volunteers for Optometric Service to Humanity (SVOSH) at Southern College of Optometry  in Memphis. The group raises funds for those in Central America, South America and the Caribbean for eye care and medication in those areas.

“We wanted to do one locally to support the group in Memphis,” said Dr. Jon Reid of Carlinville Advanced EyeCare.

Registration is $20 and check-in will start at 8:30 a.m. at Advanced EyeCare.
