4th ANNUAL 5K SUMMER DASH
RACE TO MPOWER COMMUNITY SCHOOLS
Welcome to Metropolitan Family Services - Midway annual 5K Summer Dash to Mpower students in Community Schools. This event will take place through the inner streets of Marquette Park located on 6743 S. Kedzie Avenue, Chicago, IL. We also hope you will stay for the awards ceremony and a celebratory dance off near the finish line! All adult 5K Summer participants will receive a short-sleeve race t-shirt and goody bag. Youth will also receive a goody bag and are encourage to wear their school logo t-shirt to represent their school! Free tacos from Tacos Mario's will be distributed to the participants and beer for adults from our generous sponsor Goose Island. Bring the family to our educational tent after the race and enjoy some school performances, live music and have the kids bound in the bouncy house or get their face painted.
The Community Schools program of Metropolitan brings academic and social supports to schools to ensure that students succeed academically as well as in their future lives. Community Schools engages children in enrichment programming before and after the school day, and on weekends. Such programming includes academic remediation, technology training, art classes, recreation and sports programming. Unfortunately, contracts for such programming do not cover total costs and the 5K has become a strategy to bridge the budget gap.
Race will begin promptly at 8:00a.m. No dogs, roller blades, bicycles, or skateboards allowed on course.
Our course is USATF Certified!
