Sat June 12 - Sun June 27 Anywhere, IL 60169 US

The Children’s Advocacy Center of North and Northwest Cook County's (CAC) annual Champions for Children 5K has gone virtual again! While we’ll miss the camaraderie of seeing you in person, a virtual 5K means you can participate anytime, anywhere, on a treadmill, peloton bike, or the pavement, and still help kids in your community.

To participate, run, walk or bike a 5K (3.1 miles) anytime between June 12-June 27 and submit your results. You’ll be staying active for a good cause, doing something fun with family!

Your support will directly help children in your community who are forced to shelter in place with their abusers during the pandemic. Our entire staff is working hard to provide the best care possible for our clients now and to prepare for an increase we are starting to see, but we need your help now more than ever.

Register as an individual, team or simply donate to the cause. Your donation helps us give children who have suffered physical and sexual abuse a place to heal.

Registration includes a custom digital bib, performance t-shirt, and digital finisher certificate. Register by May 27 to guarantee shirt and size!
