Project HOPEFUL's Stomp Stigma 5K

Sunday, September 08, 2013


We are excited to announce that in conjunction with our Team Truth 1/2 marathon, this year we will run the Stomp Stigma 5K on the same day!  Designed especially for our youngest supporters (but open to any runners), the 5K starts after the 1/2 marathon.  Runners will enjoy the wild cheering of fans all the way to the finish of their 5K.

YOU are invited to join Team TRUTH's first ever STOMP STIGMA 5k as we raise funds for  our mission to educate, encourage, and enable families and individuals to advocate for and adopt children with HIV/AIDS and other of the most overlooked children for adoption.

Together we will train for and participate in the 5K Race on September 8, 2013.  Not a runner? That's alright! For many, this is the first running event that they have participated in. You CAN do it!

We ask each Stomp Stigma runner to register here and through the official 5K site to secure your place in the race. We can't wait to see what this year will bring!

A little about the 5K from the half marathon website:

"The Hyundai Hope On Wheels 5K will take place on September 8, the same day as the Chicago Half Marathon, and actually uses the same start line and finish line as the Chicago Half. The Hyundai Hope on Wheels 5K will start at approximately 7:45 a.m. and will be a great opportunity for friends and families to participate before they cheer their loved ones on to the finish. The Hyundai Hope On Wheels 5K will carry a 50-minute time limit for completion, or 16 minute per mile pace. The course will take you through beautiful Jackson Park and participants will receive many of the same perks as the half marathon participants."
