Fight to the Finish Extreme 5K Race to Benefit Almost Home Kids


The 5th annual Fight to the Finish extreme 5K race invites participants of all ages to register for this family-fun event full of mud, obstacles and challenging terrain.

As you pull yourself up a brick wall, crawl through the mud and fight to get through the water, you’ll be reminded of the challenges that OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois patients fight to overcome each day.

Money raised will go towards Almost Home Kids, a transitional home for children with complex health needs who are ready to be discharged from the hospital but for whom preparations at home need to be made, as well as training for their families, and respite care. Children’s Hospital of Illinois is raising funds to build an Almost Home Kids facility in Peoria, just the third home of its kind in the nation.
