Fancy Prance

Thank you for grabbing your sneakers and helping us celebrate Esther's half-birthday on September 20th!  Congratulations to our 5K winner, Mike Gille!

If you weren't able to join us in 2022, don't worry, we will be back supporting Esther's pediatric inpatient friends in 2023.

For those new to the Fancy Prance, Esther's Friends' Fancy Prance is a virtual 5k run 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 (and even a stroller division), 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!
