Help us raise money

For participating in Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon Race Weekend 2022

Our story…

It's the annual Sousaphone 5K with the Marching Illini Sousaphones. We're raising money for Crisis Nursery by running the Christie Clinic 5K with our sousaphones on! Feel free to join us, with or without the sousaphone or just donate to the fundraiser! Please let Michael Shoucair know at if you're interested in participating with the sousaphone on for the 5K. It's been 3 years since the last one so let's make this the biggest Sousaphone 5K yet!

Crisis Nursery is an emergency-based childcare facility offering 24/7/365 services for families in crisis in order to prevent child abuse and neglect. They have served the entire Champaign-Urbana community since 1983 with no fees or income requirements. Let’s help give back to this incredible organization so they can continue to do their amazing work!
