PINK LEMONADE 5K ‘6th Zest’
to benefit Lemons of Love
Lions Park – Mount Prospect
Sunday, October 4, 2019 @ 9AM
Come join us for our 6th Annual Lemons of Love PINK LEMONADE 5K in Mount Prospect! Come run/walk with us to raise funds to build Lemons of Love chemo care packages.
If you can’t run or walk, come out to cheer for your favorite runner on race day! Find out other ways to get involved, click here.
We will have raffles, snacks, dancing and a DJ, too!
This is a measured 5K course that will be run with chipped bibs for all participants. The course will begin at Lions Park – Mount Prospect Park District (on a proven 5K course) and run through the nearby neighborhood. Water will be provided on the course and at the end. We will provide snacks and drinks at the end, in the park.
Registration is $45 for adults, $35 for teens and $30 for Little Lemons. On Race Day, registration will be the following: $50.00, teens $40.00 and $35.00 for Little Lemons (on-site, cash or check only!)
All registered participants will receive a “Lemons of Love” 5K T Shirt & Lemon Swag Bag! Please specify t-shirt size when registering. No exchanges will be possible on race day.
Honor a life that’s been touched by cancer with an honorary sign at our “6th Slice” 5K’s Lemon Honor Line.
With a $20 donation, you can create a personalized sign that’s decorated with a photo, quote and/or inspirational message. Dedicate your sign to a loved one who has passed, a survivor, or someone in treatment. All honorary signs will be displayed along our 5K’s Lemon Honor Line—a special area right at the finish line.
Each honorary sign is a blank 9”x24” sign with metal posts to stick in the ground. Decorate your sign however you choose. Be creative! Feel free to use both sides of the sign. (Please remember this is a family event😊)
Only official Lemon Honor Line signs distributed by Lemons of Love will be displayed at the event.
