Location: DuSable Harbor, Chicago
Address: 150 N. Lake Shore Dr, Chicago, IL 60601
Additional information: Featuring an out-and-back chip-timed 5K run and 5K walk, the 5K for Missing Children steps off from DuSable Harbor in Downtown Chicago and boasts one of the best views of Chicago's skyline. In its second year, the race also features a Kid's Dash and many other family activities such as a bounce house, balloon animals, face-painting and a magician. Not to mention, the event supports a great non-profit mission in The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.


When one thinks of child abduction and exploitation, many think, "that could never happen in my town," or, "that's only an issue in under-developed areas of the world." However, this is an issue that occurs many major cities like our hometown of Chicago. According to the National Crime Information Center, hundreds of thousands of people reported missing in the United States during the year of 2016, with over half of those reports being of children.

Plain and simple, these numbers are staggering. Which is why we have decided to take a stand and support the efforts of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) by helping to raise awareness of this very serious issue and to educate families on how to keep kids safe, through Chicago's second annual 5K Run/Walk benefiting NCMEC.

On October 14, 2017, hundreds of families will gather together and run/walk to raise awareness and support NCMEC's mission. Starting and finishing in Maggie Daley Park, runners and walkers from throughout Illinois will block out the lakefront trail. The event will include a 5k Run and Walk, a Kid's Dash, Face Painting, Bounce House, Kids IDing, Post Race Party and many other great activities for the entire family. We welcome anyone to join us who is willing to help raise awareness or learn ways that they can keep their children safe. We are extremely excited to be able to host such a worthwhile event and are looking forward to a very successful day!
