2016 marks the first year Chicago will participate in the Fasting 5K. The team has selected Youth Services of Glenview/Northbrook as the local charity recipient for 2016. Youth Services’ mission is to foster the social and emotional wellbeing of children and youth. They believe that every child should grow up happy, healthy and hopeful.
Youth Services assists children and families in need, so these strong families can build strong communities. They recruit, train and coordinate volunteers, and promote cooperative programming with other organizations serving the community. They also serve the community by actively collaborating with a number of local organizations and participating in community task forces. Funds collected by Fasting 5K participants will be used for the research, design, and implementation of additional wellbeing programs for the community.
