August 20, 2022 - WE ARE BACK AT HARMS WOODS (Grove 1)
Burgers & Beer has been a Universal Sole tradition for over eight years! It started as a grass roots fun run from Universal Sole's Lakeview store to bring people together for an easy fun run in the neighborhood followed by a cold beer and burgers from various Lakeview neighborhood bars! With the growth and popularity of the Burgers & Beer Fun Runs, folks asked if we were ever going to do an official Burgers & Beer 5k race! Well, here we are... The 9th annual USOLE Burgers & Beer 5k on August 20, 2022 @ Harms Woods Forest Preserve.
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!

Reduce Waste Chicago -- They help Chicagoan's reduce their waste output through reusing, repairing and recycling. They work with organizations across the city to host Reuse & Recycle Pop-Up events, where residents can drop off materials from our accepted items list that are not accepted by the city’s Blue Cart program. RWC distributes items to other organizations, local nonprofits, artists groups and recycling companies – all of which improves landfill diversion. Reduce Waste Chicago will be out at the Burgers & Beer 5k accepting running shoes for recycling. For more information, click here.
