Bucktown 5k is proud to support the 100 Club of Chicago.

The 100 Club of Chicago is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) charitable organization incorporated under the laws of the State of Illinois. It was founded in 1966.

The purpose of the organization is to provide for the surviving spouses and dependents of law enforcement officers, firefighters and paramedics who lose their lives in the line of duty. This includes all federal, state, county and local officers, firefighters and paramedics stationed in Cook and Lake County.
