March to College 5K

March to College 5K

Date: Thursday, May 16
Time: 5:30 p.m.
Location: Upper Hutchison Field (Grant Park) | Chicago
Beneficiary: AIM High Program of Center for CompaniesThatCare
Run or walk for a truly noble cause: encouraging public school students to graduate high school and go to (as well as graduate from) college at the 2nd annual March to College 5K! It's also unique in that this 5K (non-competitive) after-work run and walk will be held in on a Thursday afternoon in scenic Grant Park.

March to College is presented by AIM High, a program of the Chicago-based non-profit Center for Companies That Care. Open to all Chicagoland residents and students, its goal is to inspire underprivileged, school-age students to "aim high" for a college education.

In addition, Centers for Companies That Care will also be exhibiting its "Gallery of Celebrity Endorsements" where public figures who support higher education have autographed t-shirts with the event's "Go to College" slogan. (Companies That Care will later donate these t-shirts to participating CPS schools.)

Register today! Donate to the cause! Learn more at www.marchtocollege.org!

Fees
$35 for adults
$10 for students (through college, with student ID)
$25 for families (one adult + 2 kids)
