DuPage County Human Race

The rain did not stop the people of DuPage County from getting out early this morning to walk or run in support of the many non-profits throughout the county.

This is the third year my family and I have participated in the race. Each year we have supported a different non-profit organization. This year we walked with our good friends from the DuPage Railroad Safety Council.  The DuPage Railroad Safety Council is made of railroad officials, government officials, engineers, educators and private citizens who have a deep concern for safety at railroad crossings. The Council was founded on April 30, 1994 as an outgrowth of a Railroad Safety Conference called by the Chairman of the DuPage County Board. Since that time, the Council has met regularly to examine ways to heighten awareness and improve safety conditions at railroad crossings and to work with civic and railroad leaders to stop preventable accidents along railroad right of ways.
