Cancer and other diseases rob far too many children of a carefree youth. But despite days, weeks or even months in the hospital, dedicated volunteers at Lurie Children’s Hospital help make life as normal as possible for these young patients. The Volunteer Programs at Lurie Children’s Hospital only operate because of generous donations from caring individuals like you. This is why it is our mission to raise $20,000 to assist the volunteer efforts – including games, toys, arts and crafts, and special events for the patients and their siblings at the hospital.
Come show your true love and support of a great organization at the MY HERO 5K Run/Walk to benefit Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. The race will be held on Saturday April 1st 2017 from 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM starting and finishing just north of Chicago’s historic Montrose Harbor. You can find a map of the run route in the location section of this webpage. Get into the spirit of the race by dressing as your favorite superhero. Each participant will also receive an event t-shirt to wear while they run/walk a 5K. The most accurate timing methods available will be used for runners interested in tracking their race time. The race will feature a live DJ and beautiful views of the lakefront path and downtown Chicago. Join the run as an individual or sign up as a team with your friends or co-workers to help us reach, or hopefully surpass, our goal. Please join us in our efforts to raise money and awareness for Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. See you there!
