Why is it called the Rooster 5K? Roosters are a very important bunch in the Naperville Jaycees--that is our nick name for our non-voting members who are age 41+ who just love to volunteer and raise money for non-profit organizations. They are spearheading this fun run 5K, so when you see them, give them a "cock-a-doodle-doo"!
