About This Activity

PINK LEMONADE – Lemons of Love, Inc. 5k


First EVER (annual) Lemons of Love 5K in Mount Prospect! Come run/walk with us to raise funds to build Lemons of Love bags for chemo patients.
Lemons of Love began in 2014 with a cancer diagnosis. After seeing so many people going through chemo sad and alone, we started making and delivering these bags to oncology wards at hospitals for those going through chemotherapy treatments. Our goal is to bring a smile to those during the darkest days of treatments. All proceeds of this 5k will go to Lemons of Love, Inc.


This is an official, measured 5k course that will be run with bib’s and tear off tags for all participants. The course will begin at Busse & Emerson Streets and run through the “Triangle” neighborhood and return back to the front of Chase Bank on Busse Street. Digital clocks with mile splits will be posted at mile 1, 2, and the finish line. Water and Gatorade will be provided on the course. Course map will be posted soon.


$40.00 for adults and $20.00 for Little Lemons (with registered adult) Race day registration $50.00 (on-site, cash or check only!!) All pre-registered adult registrants will receive a “Lemons of Love” 5K T Shirt & Lemon Swag Bag! Little Lemons will receive a Lemons of Love Swag Bag. Please specify adult t-shirt size when registering. No exchanges will be possible on race day.


A fundraising webpage is automatically created for everyone who registers online! Prizes for the top fundraisers! EVERYONE WHO DONATES or RAISES A MINIMUM OF $50 by September 1st will be put in our give away (winners will be announced at 5k run and prize will be available for pick up after event). Visit the fundraising link for more details! Whether you raise an extra $10.00 or $1,000.00, Lemons of Love is grateful for your efforts! (FUNDRAISING IS OPTIONAL)

Be a VIP!!

Not a runner or a walker? You can still show your support by donating or sponsoring a runner or walker to support the cause. Donations over $40.00 qualify for a Lemons of Love Swag Bag!


Awards will be given for the top 3 male and female finishers.  We will have various other prizes to be given by drawing of bibb number. 


We will have packet pickup times and locations posting soon.


Parking is available at the Mount Prospect Village Hall parking garage, Village lot near former Blues Bar and other street parking (not on course). Absolutely no parking in the Chase Bank parking lot, due to tear down of Mount Prospect’s Octoberfest (October 9 & 10).


Don't let the good times end after the race! Join us for the post-race celebration. We will have drinks and snacks available for all registered participants. Burn off some calories in the run or walk so you can enjoy the treats afterwards!


Lemons of Love will not be able to offer refunds for ANY reason. Please make sure you can attend on Sunday, October 11, 2015 prior to registration. If for some reason you need to withdraw, your packet will be available at pick-up. Rain day will be scheduled for Spring of 2016 and all paid entrance fees will be moved to that date.


If you would like to volunteer, please click on the REGISTER NOW button and complete the volunteer registration form! We need corner workers, registration day, set up, clean up, water table, etc! We cannot have a successful event without all of you!


If your company is interested in becoming a sponsor of Lemons of Love 5K, please email for information and sponsorship opportunities.


If you would like to support but cannot make it out on race day, sign up as a Virtual Runner! Do the run or walk on your own, wherever you may be and Facebook, tweet, or email your time, route, etc. to us! All virtual runners will get a Lemons of Love Swag Bag!
