Fancy Prance

September 13th - 20th, 2024

Get ready to grab your sneakers and join Esther's Friends in this virtual event as we raise funds to support Chicagoland pediatric inpatients!

Our friends at Fleet Feet have once again generously donated gift cards! Two winners of the 5K run will receive a $100 gift card and ALL registrants will be automatically entered in a raffle to win one of three $50 gift cards! 

For those new to the Fancy Prance, Esther's Friends' Fancy Prance is a virtual 5K run and walk inspired by Esther's love of being fancy and having fun - so wear something fancy and fun and remember Esther, while making a difference in the lives of children facing long-term hospitalizations! 

While we have categories for the entire family, the 5K distance is especially meaningful as that is about the distance from Esther's house to Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, where Esther met with her specialists and stayed during her hospitalizations.

Other distances include a 1-Mile Walk and a Kid Dash!  Everyone, no matter how old or young, can get in on the fun - whether you choose to run with a necklace, glowstick, tutu, superhero cape, headband, nail polish - whatever is that one little extra thing that makes you smile and feel happy!

We hope you will go for a run for Esther with Esther's Friends!
