On Saturday, November 8th, over 3,000 Chicago Run participants gathered in Washington Park for our annual Fall Fun Run! The event united students and family members from 42 schools in 32 unique communities across the city.

We were so lucky to have the Tonti Elementary Band, Chicago Sky's Sky Guy, Kymberlee & the Fly Girl Dance crew, Monique & the Skyy Level Group, and Chicago Run's own mascot, the "Orange Man", join us in our celebration of health and fitness. At the event, we celebrated the first time in Chicago Run history that our students have run over 100,000 miles prior to the Fall Fun Run. Congrats to all of our partner schools for being a part of this huge milestone!
The event would not have been possible without our dedicated volunteers, site coordinators, and Chicago Run staff. A huge thank you to the Chicago Park District, CPS, Walgreens, and Pretzel Crisps for their support and sponsorship.
