For 28 years, the ABC 7 Gibbons 5K Run and 3K Walk has proven itself as a landmark race in the Chicagoland area and is a major fundraiser for the Leukemia Research Foundation (LRF).

Each year on the third Thursday in June, more than 2,000 participants gather along Chicago's downtown lakefront to run, walk and raise funds in search of a cure for all blood cancers.
