About This Activity

 Stop the Clot Chicago 5K FUN RUN/WALK  

Did you know every 5 minutes someone dies of a blood clot, which is more than AIDS, Breast Cancer and car accidents combined.  Please help us get the word out about the dangers of blood clot this spring 2015 and join us this get the word out to STOP THE CLOT! A portion of the proceeds of this run will benefit the National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA). NBCA's mission is to educate everyone about the danger of blood clots.

This run/ walk is dedicated to Manu "Shaq" Williams. On September 28, 2014 my best friend Manu who I love very much passed away from a Pulmonary Embolism‎ (PE) a blood clot blockage that stopped his heart. He was only 36 years young, very healthy and extremely active. Let's work together to STOP THE CLOT!
