The Run for Hope has become an annual tradition for ISP supporters in Chicago. Each April we gather together in Chicago’s Grant Park to run a 5k/10k race and to raise awareness and funds for the spiritual needs of our brothers and sisters experiencing homelessness and addiction.
This year, the ISP Run for Hope will be hosted in TWO cities: Chicago and St. Louis.
ISP will be teaming with the GO! St. Louis Marathon & Family Fitness Weekend to raise awareness and support for ISP in St. Louis.
We are excited to be a part of GO! For a Cause. We are hoping to recruit at least 25 runners in St. Louis to raise $120 each (plus their registration fee). Please help us to reach this goal!
The Details for the Run for Hope in St. Louis are a little bit different from the Chicago Run for Hope, so please pay attention to the details!
GO! St. Louis has options for a 5k as well as a half and full marathon. The 5k Race will be held on Saturday, April 6th at 8am. The half and full marathon will be on Sunday, April 7th at 7am. There will be ISP presence and support at BOTH RACES. So you may register for whichever you choose to participate in the Run for Hope.
