ABC 7 Gibbons 5K Run & 3K Walk
The ABC7 Gibbons 5K Run and 3K Walk (which has been happening since 1994) has proven itself as a landmark event in the Chicago area and is a major fundraiser for the Leukemia Research Foundation. This local Chicago 5k charity run and walk, is held each year on the third Thursday evening in June, more than 2,000 people gather along the city's downtown lakefront to run, walk and raise funds in search of a cure for all blood cancers.
The ABC 7 Gibbons 5K Run and 3K Walk consists of a chip timed 5K Run, a 5K Fun Run and a 3K Walk. A fun filled party immediately follows the run/walk. Participants enjoy food, refreshments and live music, and have the opportunity to visit the many partner tents on-site. This creates a great atmosphere for the participants to interact. A great way to support those touched by a blood cancer while participating in a Chicago 5K run. The event has proven #itsmorethanjustarace! Please join us as we run and walk to find a cure for all blood cancers. #togetheritispossible
