When one thinks of child abduction and exploitation, many think, "that could never happen in my town," or, "that's only an issue in under-developed areas of the world." However, this is an issue that occurs many major cities like our hometown of Chicago. According to the National Crime Information Center, hundreds of thousands of people reported missing in the United States during the year of 2015, with over half of those reports being of children.

Plain and simple, these numbers are staggering. Which is why we have decided to take a stand and support the efforts of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) by helping to raise awareness of this very serious issue and to educate families on how to keep kids safe, through Chicagos first 5K Run/Walk benefiting NCMEC.

On October 15, 2016, hundreds of families will gather together and run/walk to raise awareness and support NCMECs mission. Starting and finishing in Maggie Daley Park, runners and walkers from throughout Illinois will block out the lakefront trail. The event will include a 5k Run and Walk, a Kid's Dash, Face Painting, Bounce House, Kids IDing, Post Race Party and many other great activities for the entire family. Registration for this event will open on May 25, 2016  National Missing Children's Day. We welcome anyone to join us who is willing to help raise awareness or learn ways that they can keep their children safe. We are extremely excited to be able to host such a worthwhile event and are looking forward to a very successful day!
