ABC 7 Jim Gibbons Run

Comments

Great event last night in Chicago! Thank you ABC 7 Chicago for partnering with us to raise awareness and funds for all blood cancers at the ABC 7 Jim Gibbons Run! https://abc7.ws/3MUx9IU
I had a wonderful time during this event, up until I went to pick it up my gear from gear check. my gear was returned to me, and everything seemed fine, until I got back to my car and opened my wallet to retrieve my pre-paid parking ticket. In the same pocket, where there should have been $30 cash, it was empty. I have never had this experience before at a race, and was heartbroken to think that someone would do this.

On top of that, it wasn’t even my money, it was a donation from members of my non-profit organization to go towards buying a gift for our leadership/staff members. I’m saddened, sick, and honestly pretty pi**ed about this, and I hope it didn’t happen to anyone else who checked their gear. I also hope this gets addressed and that my concerns are not swept aside.
The ABC 7 Jim Gibbons Run is right around the corner! Register yourself or get a team together and join us in Chicago on June 16 to raise awareness and funds for blood cancer.

Our Story

For the last 26 years, the ABC7 Gibbons 5K Run and 3K Walk has proven itself as a landmark event in the Chicagoland area and is a major fundraiser for the Leukemia Research Foundation.

This local Chicago 5k charity run and walk, is held each year on a Thursday evening in June, more than 2,000 people gather along the city's downtown lakefront to run, walk and raise funds in search of a cure for Leukemia, Lymphoma, Multiple Myeloma, MDS and all blood cancers.

The event consists of a chip timed 5K Run and a 3K Walk. A fun filled party immediately follows the run/walk. Participants enjoy food, refreshments and live music, and have the opportunity to visit the many partner tents on-site. This creates a great atmosphere for the participants to interact. A great way to support those touched by a blood cancer while participating in a Chicago 5K race.

A special Heroes of Hope tent dedicated to honoring blood cancer patients and Survivors provides an opportunity for those touched by these diseases to gather.
