Friends of Ukraine Team at the 2016 Soldier Field 10 Mile
The Kyiv Committee of Chicago Sister Cities International is assembling a “Friends of Ukraine” team to run the 2016 Soldier Field 10 Mile on Saturday, May 28, 2016. Sponsored by Fleet Feet Sports, the race honors America’s Armed Forces on Memorial Day weekend.
To mark the 25th anniversary of the sister city relationship between Chicago and Kyiv and the 25th anniversary of Ukraine’s modern independence, the Kyiv Committee of CSCI has been chosen as an official participating charity of the race to honor the U.S. Armed Forces for the ongoing assistance they have provided to Ukraine and to raise funds for humanitarian assistance for wounded Ukrainian soldiers and their families.
The Friends of Ukraine team is actively recruiting runners and volunteers. Volunteers will staff hydration stations on the course. The registration fee for the Friends of Ukraine team is $100 for runners and $25 for volunteers. The fee for both runners and volunteers includes a special edition “Ukrainian Tryzub and God Bless America” t-shirt.
Those who are not able to join to run, nor to assist as volunteers are encouraged to come to the event as “guests” and support the runners inside the stadium, at the finish line inside Solider Field.
