Indian Prairie Educational FoundationEnriching Education for District 204 Students


Team IPEF 2017

Donate to Team IPEF

A record setting 335 charity runners have registered to represent Team IPEF in the 5th Annual Naperville Half Marathon on Sunday, October 22, 2017.  

Runners are representing all 33 District 204 schools and the STEPS program.  Each has committed to raising awareness and a minimum of $204.  Half of funds raised go to the school designated by the runner and the other half helps support district initiatives funded by the Indian Prairie Educational Foundation.

Team IPEF was the Top Participating Charity in 2014, 2015 & 2016 and has raised more than $300,000 in the past three years.  More than 320 individuals have participated as runners with Team IPEF.  We are delighted to have 118 runners returning for either their 2nd, 3rd or 4th race with us in 2017.

“2017 will be my first time running.  I chose to participate because I enjoy the opportunity to make a difference in my child’s education.  I love that IPEF gives not only to the district, but directly to each school.”  Annie Cole, 2017 Team IPEF Runner, Prairie Children Preschool

“I am a former District 204 student.  WVHS Class of ’90.  I want to give back to the amazing district that gave so much to me!”  Beth Beedles, 2015, 2016 & 2017 Team IPEF Runner, Patterson Elementary
