The first Fight to the Finish extreme 5K race was a great success thanks to all of our participants, volunteers and sponsors! Together we raised more than $35,000 to help the patients and families at Children's Hospital of Illinois!
We captured a ton of fun photos from the race. Check them out on the event Shutterfly page.

Fight to the Finish was organized by the H.O.P.E. Committee for Children's Hospital of Illinois. H.O.P.E., which stands for Helping Our Patients Everyday, was formed with the goal to involve young professionals and families in fun activities to raise money and awareness to help the hospital care for children who need medical assistance. Together with sponsors and volunteers, the group's goal is to raise money and awareness on the programs, services, lifesaving technology and the state-of-the-art patient care provided by Children's Hospital of Illinois.
The H.O.P.E. Committee is always looking for new members to help achieve our goals. Please complete the volunteer form and submit it, and a committee member will inform you of the next meeting where you can come and share your ideas!
