GLADSTONE PARK — Before runners take off from the starting line of the second annual Run for Debby Saturday morning, the 5600 block of McVicker Avenue will be renamed for former Hitch Principal Deborah "Debby" Reese, who died in 2014.
Reese, who led Hitch for 10 years, died in February 2014 of cancer.
Reese "worked tirelessly to bring the community together and always sought ways to increase school funding opportunities and build community relationships," Garrido said.
The run will start at 9 a.m. June 20 at Hitch, 5625 N. McVicker Ave. The unveiling of the honorary street street sign is set to take place at 8:45 a.m., organizers said.
