Congratulate the Move It Awards Nominees and Winners!

During the month of May, Cook County-ites make an extra push to “move it” and be active in our daily lives. This May, we asked you to nominate someone who inspires you to move. Many wonderful nominations were received, with inspiring stories from across the county. Read this week’s Cook County News-Herald for the full list of nominations.

As part of the Move It Awards, we wanted to highlight one youth, one adult, and one senior. We want to thank each person that took the time to nominate these special individuals. And thank you to all the nominees that make that extra effort to move it in their daily lives. Be sure to congratulate these folks when you see them. Along with the paper, we’ll be sharing their stories during the month of June.
