Hops for Hope 5K

When: October 2, 2021
Where: St. Charles, IL
Race type(s): 5K

As you know 2020 was a tough year for many and this has been true with Project Mobility. Our 3 largest fundraisers in 2020 were either postponed, changed to virtual or canceled. Everything we do at Project Mobility relies HEAVILY on these events. We are still trying to recover from such a tough year.

Those with disabilities are still in need, actually in need more than ever with more families staying home and doing more outdoor/safe activities such as bike rides.

It may sound like such a simple activity but to those with mobility challenges (along with the hefty price tag of an adaptive bike) makes it nearly impossible for them to enjoy the freedom of mobility without our help.

Adaptive bikes provide life changing mobility, strength, self-esteem and the ultimate freedom for children, adults and veterans with disabilities. Cycling restores the possibilities to those whom are often told by society that their life is about limitations.

Please consider joining us today!

Project Mobility is hosting our 5th annual 5K beer run. Hops for Hope 5K is a twist on the traditional 5K! The event is timed and the course is certified, whether you are a serious runner or walker who loves beer, this event is for you. We have 4 different options this year; In-Person 5K with Beer Stops, In-Person 5K with No Beer Stops, Virtual 5K and Awards Ceremony Only.

The In-Person 5K will start at the beautiful Mount Saint Mary Park in St. Charles and head towards Geneva on the scenic path through Wheeler Park and ends back at Mount Saint Mary Park for the Award Ceremony!

Proceeds benefit Project Mobility's mission to bring adaptive cycling opportunities to the lives of children, adults, and wounded service members with emotional and physical challenges.

THAT'S A WEIRD TWIST?! We think you mean delicious and fun! Throughout the 5K there will be 6 Refueling Stations (Beer Stops) featuring local craft breweries handing out 3-ounce beer samples to runners.

The Award Ceremony will feature a live band, more beer, food and Adaptive Bike Giveaway Presentation.

*All runners must be 21 years or older and show a valid ID day of the race.
