ABC 7 Gibbons 5K Run & 3K Walk
The ABC7 Gibbons 5K Run and 3K Walk is a major fundraiser for the Leukemia Research Foundation. This local Chicago 5K charity run and walk, is held each year on a 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
