Friends of the Poor Walk

Saturday, September 28, 2013
9:00am Race Kickoff
Cannon Drive and Fullerton Ave
Chicago, IL 60614

For nearly two centuries, the poor and needy of the world have found a friend in the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. This year, the Society will hold its fourth annual nationwide Friends of the Poor® 5K Run/Walk. Pledges made on behalf of registered walkers in a given community will benefit those most in need in that same community. Walk or run a mile in someone else’s shoes and find out how good it feels to give.

The Office of Mission and Values has funded the full registration fee of $25 for the first 20 student runners/walkers who signed up. We have already sold out of the free registration, but you may register at the $25 rate. This fee is to be paid by the participant and will not be reimbursed by the university. The registration fee covers the cost of the race, and T-shirt from the event.

Packet Pickup:

If you register by 9/15/13, you may pick up your packet at New Balance Chicago in Lincoln Park, 2369 N. Clark Street from noon to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, September 24 or Thursday, September 26. All remaining packets and packets for those registered after 9/15/13 will be available on race day from 7:30a.m. – 8:30a.m. at the event near Cannon Drive and Fullerton Avenue in Lincoln Park.
