CHICAGO — Cubs fans can join in a 5K around Wrigleyville to raise money for charity.
Runners will raise money and race through Lakeview, go through Wrigley Field’s concourse and end the 5K near the stadium’s marquee. The money raised will go to the Cubs Charities’ Diamond Project, which helps Chicago kids access baseball and softball.
Race participants will get a medal, a T-shirt and a Cubs drawstring bag. The first 50 participants who raise $500 or more for the event will also get a baseball signed by a Cubs player.
The race starts 8 a.m. April 27 at Wrigley Field. Signup is available online and costs $44 for adults or $25 for kids 12 and younger. Just signing up as a fundraiser is free.
