The Fred Five was organized to raise research dollars for GALD, and infant liver disease that claimed the life of our son. Since 2013, The Fred Five has raised nearly $40,000 for GALD research at Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago. Last year we were also able to contribute $3,000 to our local amublance.
The race is a scenic, small-town 5k. We have serious racers, hobby runners, and parents with strollers. The Fred Five is truly a family-friendly affair. After the 5k, we gather kids on the track to run a few races of their own! A junior mile for the older kids, and some shorter races for the younger kids, including a a 50-meter toddler dash! Another special feature of The Fred Five - post-race monster cookies! YUM!
