The Chicago Chapter
We’re back! The 2018 team from the 1st Chicago F5K are back together and getting ready to beat our fundraising goals! We want to increase our attendees, community ties and donations to give back to our communities living with disabilities in need of our support. Our group works well together, with a mix of people from all over the country and folks from Chicago that know the in’s and out’s of the city. With our mix of talent we’re excited to make 2019 even better!
Charities We've Worked With:
Fasting 5k Chicago 2019
Deaf Planet Soul (DPS), Dream Fund
Chicago F5K is partnering this year with Deaf Planet Soul (DPS) which aims to serve the hearing impaired community in Chicago since 2017. This year, Chicago F5K is going to be raising funds for DPSs’ Dream Fund. The Dream Funds mission is to provide the hearing impaired community a common space which will include courses, workshops and amenities such as fitness, art, education, employment and business opportunities. The hearing impaired community relies heavily on other for many day-to-day aspects to mitigate socialization and experience barriers in virtually every environment. The Dream Fund aims to create sustainable learning atmospheres for members of the deaf and hard of hearing communities to learn and be empowered in multiple aspects of everyday life.
