ABC 7 Gibbons 5K Run & 3K Walk
The ABC7 Gibbons 5K Run and 3K Walk presented by Wintrust Financial 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, with more than 2,000 participants gathering in the city's Grant Park to run, walk and raise funds in search of a cure for all blood cancers.
The event consists of a chip timed 5K Run and a 3K Walk. A fun-filled party immediately follows the run/walk. Participants enjoy food, refreshments and music by DJ Dan Luna, and have the opportunity to visit the many partner tents onsite. 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
