AIDS Walk/Run 5K
In October of 2019, GCAP hosted our first annual 5k race. Harkening back to the AIDS walks that used to be promoted by UIUC’s sororities, our new iteration of this event is a registered 5k and is open to runners and walkers. Pets and strollers are also welcome.
Because of COVID-19, our 2020 5k event was hosted virtually, giving participants the ability to log their miles on their own and in a location of their choosing.
This October, we felt safe enough to once again gather in person at Crystal Lake Park for the race. Despite light rain, our third annual 5k was a success, and we are grateful to participants, as well as sponsorship from Walgreens, Carle Foundation, and OSF Healthcare.
Next year’s 5k will be held on October 1, 2022, at Crystal Lake Park in Urbana.
