THE UNIVERSAL SOLE BURGERS & BEER 5K
AUGUST 6th, 2018
AUGUST 6th, 2018
Burgers & Beer has been a Universal Sole tradition for over 8 years! It started as a grass roots event from Universal Sole's Lakeview store to bring people together for an easy fun run of 3 or 5 miles coupled with a cold beer and burgers from various Lakeview neighborhood bars! It has always been about bringing the Chicago running community together for a once a month event where friends can catch up, folks can make new friends and everyone enjoys the company while heading out on a fun run in Chicago's historic Lakeview and Lincoln Park neighborhoods. With the growth and popularity of the Burgers & Beer Fun Runs, folks have asked if we were ever going to do an official Burgers & Beer race! Well, here we are, the 7th annual Burgers & Beer 5k is officially here on August 6th, 2018 !
Race Beneficiary: Girls In The Game -- Girls In the Game knows that girls are strong. And that given the opportunity they’re capable of changing their lives and their communities. All they need is a chance. Unfortunately, research tells us that, compared to boys, they aren’t always given those opportunities. So in 1995, GIG founders set out to level the playing field for all girls. Over 20 years later, Girls in the Game has empowered more than 40,000 girls, helping them to grow up happy, healthy and strong. Learning through sports, health and leadership programs that it’s not about winning. It’s about making your voice heard. It’s about overcoming obstacles. Getting off the sidelines, and into the game!
