Thank you to everyone who joined us on May 3 to celebrate Chicago Run’s 11th annual Little Steps, Big Stars gala at Galleria Marchetti! We’re excited to announce that our annual fundraising event, raised over $220k with nearly 350 guests, featuring dancing, heavy hors d’ouevres, signature cocktails, a silent auction, and brief speaking program.

We were also delighted to present Dr. Ngozi Ezike, Director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, and Enlace Chicago with this year’s Go the Distance awards.


Check out the video below which premiered at the gala featuring one of our youth leaders, Celeste Pedroza!
