Team Lurie Children's

The Best 5K Evuh

On October 2, 2016, we will participate in the Best 5K Evuh as members of Team Lurie Children's. Our goal is to raise $20,000 for the Max Lacewell Research Scholar dedicated to brain tumor research for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Program at Lurie Children's. For more information about Max or upcoming events go to To register for the 5K, go to All participants who fundraise $300 or more will be entered to run free of charge! Once you reach the $300 goal, a foundation representative will contact you. Any participant raising $500 or more will receive a course sign honoring a cancer fighter or survivor of your choice.

The first fundraiser to raise $1500 (on the Team Lurie page) will win a Fitbit Surge fitness tracker. The top overall fundraiser will win a prize TBD. The top youth fundraiser (ages 14 and under) will receive a Star Wars Character Appearance at the event of choice and a $500 Lego Store gift card.( The top youth fundraiser must raise at least $500 to be eligible for the prize.)

Lurie Children's is located on the downtown Chicago campus of its academic partner, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. It is ranked as one of the nation's top children's hospitals by U.S.News & World Report.

The hospital relies on philanthropic support to fulfill its lifesaving mission. I hope you will support our efforts by making a gift today. Any amount will make a difference! All donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged by Lurie Children's Foundation.

With your help, more children can receive the best healthcare possible and the opportunity to reach their greatest potential.


Thank you!
