“At Midtown, we are devoted to making our community a better place,” said Robyn Kove, Midtown Athletic Club Palatine director of marketing and member connections who also serves as 5K race director. “We are proud that so many community members responded to our call to action and contributed to our donation to Bears Care to help us improve the lives of many of our neighbors.”


More than 500 runners and walkers woke up early on Saturday, September 25 to help support Bears Care and benefit local disadvantaged families by participating in the 8th annual Midtown 5K Run & Walk, hosted by Midtown Athletic Club in Palatine, IL and sponsored by SolidLine Media for the 8th straight year.Former Chicago Bears Emery Moorehead and Jim Schwantz joined in the fun which included a 3.1-mile run/walk and post race party featuring plenty of food and live entertainment courtesy of 5K sponsors.

Proceeds from the 8th annual Midtown 5K Run & Walk benefit Bears Care, the charitable beneficiary of the Chicago Bears, which is committed to improving the quality of life for people in the Chicagoland community, especially disadvantaged children and their families, through targeted programs supporting education, youth athletics and medical research and health awareness programs focusing on breast and ovarian cancer.

SolidLine has been a premier sponsor of the event since its beginning 8 years ago. Over the years more than 4,000 runners have participated helping to raise over $150,000 for the Bears Care charity.
