Welcome to Andrew's All Stars! Race day is June 4th, 2017!!
We are so excited to once again be fundraising for Ronald McDonald House® and Advocate Children’s Hospital in Oak Lawn. Our efforts in 2015 surpassed expectations as we raised over double the amount of our goal thanks for all of our generous family and friends. (goal was $1000 - raised $2500) :)
As most of you know, Hope hospital (it will forever be "Hope" to us) is the place that saved Andrew's life and continues to provide care for him. Andrew was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart. By the age of 3, he had 3 open heart surgeries and a few cardiac catherazations. Andrew hasn't required intervention in a long time, but this July, he will be at Hope for a "routine" cardiac cath. We thought it fitting to create a team for him this year.
Thank you for being a part of Andrew's All Stars! We will have a canopy for the team, so please make sure you stop by and see us! We look forward to seeing everyone on race day!!
Holly, Mike, Natalie, Andrew, AJ & Nadine

Thank you for being part of this year’s Running for Hope event! Supporters like you are the heart and soul and true success of this great event. Running for Hope is all about bringing families and friends together to help raise money to benefit two great causes. 100% of the proceeds from this run goes directly back to the Ronald McDonald House® near Advocate Children’s Hospital and Advocate Children’s Hospital in Oak Lawn.
These two beneficiaries impact the community in a positive way day in and day out. Advocate Children’s Hospital (ACH) is the largest network provider of pediatric services in Illinois and among the top 10 in the nation. The hospital is staffed by more than 400 pediatricians and 230 pediatric subspecialists who offer a wide range of specialized services for children. This year specifically, our funding will go to help benefit the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Division. Many families are affected by cancer every day, and unfortunately, some of those fighting the true fight are kids themselves. In honor of all those who have fought cancer, we will recognize National Cancer Survivors Day at our event.
