WPNA 103.1 FM is thrilled to organize for the second time the Polish Independence Run/Walk (Bieg Niepodległości)! Polish Independence 10K/5K Run/Walk is a race commemorating the anniversary of Poland’s resurgence as an independent country on November 11th, 1918.

This year, there are two distances to choose: a 10K run or a 5K run or walk. All participants will receive an event t-shirt, a custom medal and there will be trophies for winners in different age and gender divisions. Post-race activities will include Polish food and drinks.

The Polish Independence DAY 10K has partnered with Sarah’s Circle, as an Official Drop-Off Location for gently used women’s winter wear. Please consider bringing donations of women’s winter items such as Coats, Hats, Mittens, scarves, boots, etc.

Sarah’s Circle is a refuge for women who are homeless or in need of a safe space. By providing life necessities, housing, case management, clinical and social services, Sarah’s Circle encourages women to empower themselves by rebuilding both emotionally and physically; realizing their unique potential.

Biegi Niepodległości organizowane są w całej Polsce od 30 lat, a teraz, po niezapomnianym, ubiegłorocznym Biegu Stulecia, po raz drugi w Chicago. Bieg Niepodległości to okazja do uczczenia na sportowo rocznicy odzyskania przez Polskę niepodległości. To nie tylko wydarzenie sportowe, ale też szansa na pokazanie Chicago siły Polonii i podzielenia się naszą radością z tego, że mamy wolną Polskę – nawet jeśli mieszkamy poza jej granicami. Spotkajmy się, by pobiec dla Niepodległej!
