grit & run it 5k
Bridging the gap between our community and our programming
Founder, Gillian Fealy, started a small group run out of the west loop in 2015 with the goal to engage her community for a better cause. What started as a fun run has now turned into an annual community fundraising effort. Every December our athletes and our community challenge themselves and the cold to complete a 5K walk, jog or run during one of Chicago's coldest months.
Join us for our fifth annual Grit and Run It 5k! We'll be running and walking through the West Loop and then grabbing brunch and celebrating, with all proceeds going directly to our charity!
your time is valuable - put it to good use
Maybe triathlons and running aren't really your thing. Another great way to be a part of Live Grit Soars is to volunteer! Our programs cannot run without the help of our volunteers. From being a coach and mentor at an after-school program to helping on event days, there are many opportunities to get involved. And you don't need to be an endurance athlete! Reach out to us to learn more.
