Run for the Orange & Blue! Fans, alums and even "frenemies" of the Fighting Illini ... the "Big Ten" Conference (a misnomer if there ever was one)... and collegiate sports in general are encouraged to sign up--and lace up!--for the second annual I-Run Chicago this April. Proceeds benefit the University of Illinois's I FUND which each year provides millions in scholarships and other academic support services to more than 500 U of I athletes in 19 varsity sports.
This spirited event gives participants the options to partake in either a 5K or an 8K run outside the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Lincoln Park. It's pure competitive fun for a truly great beneficiary that's followed by a festive post-run party inside the museum.
