The Story

EVENT DATE: Aug 17, 2017

Bring your family, friends, and coworkers to run or walk in The Amber Room Colonnade's 9th Annual 5K, on Thursday, August 17th! All donations go directly to Ann’s Place to help keep our doors open and our cancer support services FREE of charge.


The 2016 event drew dozens of volunteers and hundreds of runners and walkers. This year we hope to beat previous records with a crowd of 500 to come out and support Ann's Place. Participants are invited to the post race party featuring a barbeque, ice cold beverages, and music!


The picturesque 5K (3.1 mile) race course runs from the Amber Room Colonnade down to Candlewood Lake and back. Participants pass by stately homes and scenic water views. Proceeds of the race benefit Ann’s Place.


Once you have raised $100 here on crowdrise, your race entry fee is waived. Please email to request your fee refund or to get a code to register for free!  Raise $250 or more and you will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a $200. Email if you would like detailed instructions on setting up your own fundraising page.
