Over 300 participants came out for our 4th Annual Lemons of Love PINK LEMONADE 5K in Mount Prospect! Thank you to our 5K Marathon sponsors, volunteers, and participants. We appreciate your support! Check back soon for pictures!
Lemons of Love began in 2014 with a cancer diagnosis. After seeing so many people going through chemo sad and alone, we started making and delivering these bags to oncology wards at hospitals for those going through chemotherapy treatments. Our goal is to bring a smile to those during the darkest days of treatments. All proceeds of this 5k will go to Lemons of Love, Inc.
Bring the whole family... We will have an ART TABLE for the little ones to create "HAPPY PICTURES" that we use for the Lemons of Love bags. We need drawings with rainbows, sunshine, animals, smiley faces and other happy images to share with the chemo patients! If you can't run or walk, come out to cheer for your favorite runner on race day!
This is an official, measured 5K course that will be run with chip-timed bibs for all participants. The course will begin at the Lions Park at Lincoln and Maple Streets and go through the neighborhood directly south of the park and end at Lions Park. Digital clocks with mile splits will be posted at mile 1, 2, and the finish line. Water will be provided on the course.
