5k Event

Join WGN’s Tom Skilling and Lauren Jiggets as they Mcee the event!








Calling all volunteers!

If running or walking the race isn’t for you, you can also volunteer! We’re looking for volunteers to help us with everything from marking the course, to handing out refreshments and medals to the participants as they finish. You can also line the course to cheer on the participants and students! The runners will take on Sheridan Road from Rosemont to Ardmore and the lakefront path. Bring your posters, noise makers and get ready to cheer them to the finish line! Sign-up to volunteer here or contact Melissa Franada at melissa@edgewater.org or 773-561-6000 with any questions or concerns.
All volunteers will be invited to a celebratory party at Empirical Brewery on Ravenswood with complimentary pizza and happy hour specials! 

Sign-up to volunteer today!
