Food News: Inaugural Brunch Run 5K!

Normally, Brandy is not exactly the best role model when it comes to exercise, but when brunch is involved, she'll turn up for just about anything.  Case in point, when Brandy became aware of a brand new 5K that not only benefited a worthy cause, but also promised a lavish brunch at the end of it, she found herself for the first time in her life considering going out for a good old fashioned run.  "I can endue just about anything if there's bacon and French toast at the end of it," as she put it.
The first ever Brunch Run is a 5K with a reward worth running (or walking) for. Participants will receive an event lifestyle t-shirt and enjoy a beautiful course at Montrose Harbor, an on-course “FauxMosa” (non-alcoholic mimosa) station, a Belgian waffle station by Julian’s Recipe and a signature brunch from Chicago’s esteemed Blue Plate Catering when they've cross the finish line. Once there, participants are invited to dig into a full spread of delicious brunch items including a Sausage, Egg and Cheese Sandwich; Roasted Red Pepper, Spinach and Egg White Sandwich; Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Sandwich; Baked Cinnamon-Raisin French Toast Casserole; Breakfast Burrito (Gluten free option available); Apple Wood Smoked Bacon; Seasonal Fruit Display; Blue Plate Pastries; Roasted Breakfast Potatoes; Kiddo “Pancake” Dog; and Mini Yogurt Parfaits.

Participants are encouraged to walk or run the chip timed 5K course in honor or in memory of a loved one who is battling or has battled cancer. Individual and team fundraising incentives will be awarded to those who raise the most funds on behalf of Imerman Angels and everyone else is encouraged to attend this family friendly event to cheer the runners on.
Registration will be $50 for adults and $15 for children ages 5-12. Each participant who registers and raises a minimum of $100 will receive an Imerman Angels picnic blanket to enjoy their brunch on (while supplies last).
