At CARA, we believe that running is more than a sport. You can attest to the impact running has had on your life. It improves physical health, mental well-being, challenges you to be your best self, and as we strongly believe at CARA, it builds community! Few activities have the capability to bring together persons from all walks of life like running.
'Go Run aims to build community, activate neighborhood parks and encourage active lifestyle through running and volunteerism. 'Go Run has provided almost 200 free timed 5K and 1 mile run/walk events since 2016 at neighborhood Chicago Parks. These runs are removing barriers to get involved in organized running.
Our cost-free, unintimidating, neighborhood-based events bring together runners of all levels, from first-timers, and families, to long-time experienced runners.
Your support will help us expand 'Go Run to more communities throughout Chicagoland!
