Description

It may be our 6th year hosting Hops for Hope 5K but our 1st year adding our BrewFest! We are excited to add a BrewFest post 5K.  All our beer loving supporters will get a chance to try even more beer plus many more fun additions. Make sure to purchase a Combo Pack so you can enjoy the 5K first then attend the BrewFest for a much deserved beer (or 18 samples!)

 

As a reminder for those new here, Hops for Hope 5K is a twist on the traditional 5K! Awarded Top 100 Races in America by BibRave, our 5K is timed and the course is certified, whether you are a serious runner or walker who loves beer, this event is for you. Not into beer? No problem! Save on registration and skip the beer!

 

The 5K will start at the beautiful Mount Saint Mary Park in St. Charles and head towards Geneva on the scenic path through Wheeler Park and ends back at Mount Saint Mary Park for the BrewFest!

 

THAT'S A WEIRD TWIST?! We think you mean delicious and fun! Throughout the 5K there will be 6 Beer Stops featuring local craft breweries handing out 3-ounce beer samples to runners. 

 

Post 5K will be the BrewFest! You will get 18 samples of beer while listening to a live band with local restaurants, raffles and our Adaptive Bike Giveaway Presentation (the reason we are all at the event!)

 

Hops for Hope 5K & BrewFest is a fundraiser for Project Mobility. Project Mobility is a local nonprofit that provides the freedom of mobility to children, adults, and wounded soldiers with disabilities through adaptive cycling. Due to the pandemic those with disabilities are in need more than ever with more families staying home and doing more outdoor/safe activities such as bike rides. It may sound like such a simple activity but to those with mobility challenges (along with the hefty price tag of an adaptive bike) it makes it nearly impossible for them to enjoy the freedom of mobility without our help.

 

​Adaptive bikes provide life changing mobility, strength, self-esteem and the ultimate freedom for children, adults and veterans with disabilities. Cycling restores the possibilities to those who are often told by society that their life is about limitations.

 

Please consider joining us October 1st!

Who is Project Mobility

Project Mobility is the nonprofit 501(c)3 organization of The Bike Rack in St. Charles. Our mission is to provide the freedom of mobility to children, adults and wounded soldiers with disabilities through adaptive cycling.  We have been providing adaptive cycling to the disability community for 20 years. We have four signature programs:

• Adaptive Bike Giveaway

• Veteran Cycling Initiative

• In-Services

• Adaptive Bike Days

Our professional staff works with families, rehabilitative professionals, military and children’s hospitals, schools, and disability organizations and more to promote better health, independence, and most of all the freedom of mobility for people with physical disabilities.

Through our Adaptive Bike Giveaway at both our Signature Events we have given nearly 50 adaptive bikes over the last 10 years! We have been able to give the freedom of mobility to many amazing people thanks to our participants, sponsors and donors! Here are a few stories of those we have helped over the years:

Junior: A father who ended up in a wheelchair from getting shot protecting his daughter. 

Avery: A child with such a rare gene mutation only 4.5 people out of 10 million world-wide have it. 

Tynan: A child that was almost 5 years old that underwent an anatomical left hemispherectomy, in which surgeons removed the left side of his brain.

For 2022 we want to top those numbers and need your help!
