About This Activity

The 5K Run for Urban Youth takes you through the beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District in Oak Park, IL. We are also conveniently located a few blocks from the CTA Green Line. This race will feature the following: CHIP timing from Ipico Sports, a dry performance t-shirt, custom medals for all who place, and awards for the top three finishers in each age group. Participants will also be eligible for a bib raffle that includes lots of exciting prizes.

This event will go to support 931 BASKETBALL and BY THE HAND CLUB FOR KIDS. 931 Basketball and By the Hand Club for Kids seek to help empower urban youth living in at-risk communities.

931 Basketball offer a highly competitive basketball experience, mentors, academic advocacy, and college transition guidance. The vision for 931 Basketball is to to create mutually transformative relationships between urban youth and adult coaches, educators, mentors, social workers, and pastors.

By the Hand Club for Kids helps children who live in high-risk, inner-city neighborhoods have abundant life. They are a Chicago-based, after-school program that emphasizes academic excellence while nurturing the whole child—mind, body and soul.
