Why should you participate or volunteer for this 5K/1Mile event?

This is such a FUN community-friendly way to raise awareness and support for Marklund's programs and services. On April 21st, we can all come together as a local community in the Bloomingdale neighborhood to celebrate with food from local vendors, energizing music, and more. Get your family and friends involved or ask them to support you in fundraising and come cheer you on for the race! 

If you are experienced in running 5Ks, we'd love to have you join us and try for a new PR. If you are one of our top finishers you will receive an exclusive medal. If you are new to 5Ks or running in general, this will be an encouraging and supportive environment for you to join.

If you are not a runner, that is completely okay! This is called the Run, Walk & Roll. Register to walk the course that Sunday morning with a group or individually. If you want to try a running event, but aren't sure about the 3.1 miles yet, sign up for the 1 Mile fun run-- that might be the right option for you! 

Participants who register by March 9th can choose to receive an event shirt to remember the day. Everyone who participates will receive a keepsake medal to commemorate their involvement and efforts in supporting the Marklund mission that morning. (Please note that participant medals are guaranteed to the first 450 registrations only.)

There is truly something for everyone on race day -- This event cannot happen without you! We hope to see you there.

One hundred percent of the net proceeds from the Run, Walk & Roll event goes directly toward Marklund's mission.


Fundraise to WIN

Individuals that fundraise $250+ will be entered into a GRAND PRIZE drawing. Raise $1,000+ to get your name entered twice!

By raising $250+, you will also get a guaranteed prize mailed to you after the event. It's a win-win!

How Your Support Makes a Difference

Marklund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that serves infants, children, teens and adults with serious and profound developmental disabilities and special healthcare needs.
Marklund owns and operates three campuses in the Chicago metropolitan area: The Marklund Philip Center in Bloomingdale, the Marklund Hyde Center in Geneva, and the Marklund Wasmond Center in Elgin.
Marklund’s three primary programs offered at all three campuses are: HOMES with 24-hour nursing care for children and adults with severe and profound developmental disabilities; SCHOOLS with individualized programming for children with medically complex developmental disabilities and students diagnosed on the autism spectrum; and COMMUNITY DAY SERVICES – a pre-vocational training program for adults with developmental disabilities.
Marklund continues to step forward with open arms, meeting the needs families face when their loved one has special needs. Dedicated to treating each individual with dignity and giving them a voice, Marklund provides the highest quality of care – above and beyond state requirements.
This “Marklund Standard of Care" is not fully covered by the State of IL, leaving us a service gap of $20,268 per individual, per year. We need your help to close this funding gap!
100% of net proceeds from this event will be applied toward this gap in funding, to support Marklund’s residential programs and services.
