The Cross Town 5K Walk/Run provides an opportunity for individuals or same-household families to walk or run through their communities, demonstrating solidarity and commitment to our faith, while raising financial support for our parishes.   Every sponsorship dollar donated to Ascension on behalf of Father will be sent to the Metropolis of Chicago Parish Relief fund and flow directly to the parishes in our Metropolis affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event takes place on the weekend typically reserved for the Junior Olympics, a time when thousands of parents, young adults and children from throughout the Metropolis come together for athletic competition. Although the Coronavirus pandemic has prevented us from celebrating the Junior Olympics, the Metropolis has created this event as a way to keep the spirit of the Junior Olympics alive, while adhering to social distancing guidelines set forth by the states in our Metropolis.  We may be separate, but we are united in Christ!

Are you and/or your family interested in walking or running in the Cross Town Virtual 5K?
