A night spent dancing to a DJ at the club burns calories and works up a sweat, so why not put the dance floor on a 5K course? That's exactly what Night Nation Run has done—participants run, walk, or dance their way through a race course illuminated by interactive light shows and pumping with electronic dance music from live DJs. After partying through multiple DJ stages, revelers finish at a raucous main-stage after-party. Headliner DJs soundtrack the event on the main stage while participants celebrate crossing the finish line as a member of the Night Nation.
In 1997 PAWS Chicago set out to halt the unnecessary killing of thousands of homeless cats and dogs in the region, establishing a No Kill shelter and organizing public-awareness campaigns. More than 30,000 adoptions later, team members still visit Chicago Animal Care and Control six days a week to take as many pets into their care as they have room for, providing necessary medical attention as well as spaying and neutering services. The Lurie Spay/Neuter Clinic and GusMobile spay and neuter van serve the pets of low-income families and tackle the problem of animal overpopulation in city neighborhoods, catching, treating, and releasing more than 18,000 cats and dogs every year to prevent the unchecked growth of local animal colonies. Through the Adoption and Humane Center in Lincoln Park, PAWS also adopts out animals that enter its shelters. The center maintains a cage-free facility to ensure pets live in comfort and dignity until they can be matched with an adoptive family.

The Chicago Architecture Foundation works to promote the city of Chicago as a major architectural center. Additionally, they provide a forum for professionals who are interested in or involved in architectural design. The Foundation encourages citizens to become involved in every facet of architecture including the design and engineering phases. The organization was formed in 1966 by concerned members of the community who were dedicated to preserving the Glessner House from demolition. Their successful efforts not only saved the private residence designed by H.H. Richardson, but also led to the founding of the organization. They offer regular exhibits and educational programs for adults and children and do accept all types of donations. They are located at 224 S. Michigan Avenue in Chicago, Illinois and continue to work in the community to preserve beautiful structures and educate the public on the intrinsic value of amazing architecture.
Stop the Clot Chicago 5K was started to honor the memory of one man. But its founders hope to help save the 274 people who die of blood clots each day. In that spirit, the race benefits the National Blood Clot Alliance, a nonprofit advocacy organization that educates healthcare professionals and the general public about the diagnosis and prevention of blood clots.
This year's race takes place on the Montrose Beach lake path, with runners of all fitness levels and shoe sizes welcome to join the event. Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each age group, and everyone will be treated to an after party with live entertainment, raffles, and pancakes from Babycakes Gourmet.
