More than 7,000 people will be running through the city Saturday for AIDS Run & Walk Chicago.
The event kicks off at 10:00 a.m. in Grant and features both 5K and 10K options, on-site entertainment, prizes for top fundraisers and a Health and Fitness Village.
The roster of performers includes Chicago Spirit Brigade, R&B artist Adam Emil, Windy City Cowboys, the 95th Street Band, Cerque Rivera Dance Theater and more. A trip for two to Europe is also among the prizes.
All proceeds benefit the AIDS Foundation of Chicago and more than 70 local AIDS organizations.
AIDS Run & Walk Chicago was established in 2001 and since then has netted more than $3 million to battle the epidemic.
