The 9th Annual "Race to Wrigley" presented by Athletico drew over 6,000 runners, raising $65,000 and drawing a total of $325,000.
Friends, families, neighbors, fans, first-time visitors, and the Wrigley faithful came together in support of Lurie Children's Hospital on a luckily warm-weathered April morning. Led by Cubs owner Laura Ricketts, Biggest Loser Season 14 winner Danni Allen, and former Lurie Children's Hospital patient Diana Greiner, the popular 5K started and ended at the century-old Wrigley Field, with a few-hundred yard track within the concourse to close the race out.
In constant support of the community and youth, Cubs Charities looked to the racers for donations, with leading team Zakk Attakk raising $5,722 and leading individual fundraiser Melissa Carrier West raising $4,246. All racers who raised over $1,000 were given the opportunity to take a picture on the sacred grounds of the Friendly Confines, and to take a lap around the warning track.
"This is our ninth year for this race and we are incredibly grateful for the fans' generosity and their show of support." - Laura Ricketts
Cubs Charities thanks the participants and donors for their continued support as we look to improve the quality of lives within our community.
