We are pleased to announce that we are sponsors for this years 5K! So please come out and join us!
With 900+ individuals participating in “Ditch the Weight & Guns” Englewood 5K Walk & Run on November 2, 2014, the community-led family event was an epic success.
We invite you to join us at The 2nd Annual “Ditch the Weight & Guns” Englewood 5K Walk & Run 2015, a USATF certified closed course 5K race in Greater Englewood, organized by Forever Fitness Chicago, LLC.
The race takes place on November 1, 2015 at Ogden Park 6500 S. Racine Chicago, IL 60636 and its mission is to help raise awareness and promote fitness, nutrition, and violence prevention in the Greater Englewood community.
Research shows a direct correlation between obesity and poverty, and poverty and crime; hence “Ditch the Weight & Guns” Englewood 5K Walk & Run, a community health initiative designed to address and combat the aforementioned social issues collaboratively.
Proceeds from the race are donated to William R. Harper High School, which is located in the heart of Greater Englewood. “Ditch the Weight & Guns” Englewood 5K Walk & Run 2014 proceeds helped purchase much needed equipment and uniforms for the Athletic Department. This year’s goal is to purchase a juicer, blender, and six (6) month supply of fresh fruits and vegetables for the school cafeteria.
Feel free to participate, volunteer, donate, and/or sponsor “Ditch the Weight & Guns” Englewood 5K Walk & Run 2015.
