Comer Children's Hospital at the University of Chicago is built upon a rich tradition of excellence in pediatric care, deeply impacting the patients and families they serve. The hospital serves families as close as Hyde Park and as far away as China. Your participation or sponsorship will enable the hospital to continue to provide the best possible care for all of their small patients. At last year's race, more than 700 participants helped raise more than $120,000 to help fund the research efforts of University of Chicago medical students and research fellows, whose discoveries could lead to breakthroughs in pediatric care around the world.
