RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon Will Visit Apollo School in Des Plaines For Its 'Get in Gear to Start the Year' Event on Sept. 14

CHICAGO, Sept. 6, 2013 – The RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon will visit Apollo School, 10100 Dee Road, Des Plaines, Ill., on Sept. 14 as part of the school's "Get in Gear to Start the Year" walk/bike/run event. The goal of the event, created in cooperation with the Illinois Safe Routes to School program, is to encourage students to walk and bike safely to school each day.

The main event of the morning will be a 3K walk/bike/run open to students, their families and all members of the community, as well as to pets that are on a leash. The event begins at 8 a.m., and the 75-foot-tall RE/MAX balloon will be tethered until approximately 9 a.m., weather permitting.

The RE/MAX balloon has become a nationally recognized corporate symbol since it was created 35 years ago and then combined with the now familiar RE/MAX "Above the Crowd!"® slogan. Today, the balloon enjoys great success in achieving both educational and promotional objectives, appearing frequently at schools, festivals, parades and charity events.

The RE/MAX balloon will be involved in more than 100 educational programs presented by its crew at schools across northern Illinois this year.
