Fight to the Finish was organized by the H.O.P.E. Committee for Children’s Hospital of Illinois. H.O.P.E., which stands for Helping Our Patients Everyday, was formed with the goal to involve young professionals and families in fun activities to raise money and awareness to help the hospital care for children who need medical assistance. Together with sponsors and volunteers, the group’s goal is to raise money and awareness on the programs, services, lifesaving technology and the state-of-the-art patient care provided by Children’s Hospital of Illinois.

The H.O.P.E. Committee is always looking for new members to help achieve our goals. Please email us at info@fighttothefinish.org and a committee member will inform you of the next meeting!


The first Fight to the Finish Extreme 5K race was held in 2013, raising more than $35,000 to help the patients and families at Children’s Hospital of Illinois. Last year, the 2nd annual Fight to the Finish raised over $50,000! Both races were a great success thanks to all of our participants, volunteers, and sponsors! Lets see if we can beat that this year!
