Fancy Prance

September 15th - 20th, 2023

Thank you to all who participated in our annual Fancy Prance!

The event is now closed.  Congratulations to our 5K and raffle winners!  You should have received your gift cards in the mail.

If you didn't have the chance to participate this year - don't worry we will be back in 2024!  So grab your sneakers next year and join Esther's Friends in this virtual event as we raise funds to support Chicagoland pediatric inpatients!

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!
