Post a Race:
Chinese Mutual Aid Association’s annual Dim Sum & Then Some 5K/10K & Kids Dash is a unique race, fundraiser and community event highlighting the diversity of the Uptown neighborhood- with all proceeds benefiting the low income immigrant and refugee community.
The race offers participants a unique experience, with all proceeds reinvested back into the community through the work of our staff. At the onset of the race, runners are treated to a rite of good luck by partaking in a Lao ceremony whereby a string is tied around participants’ wrists. Lion head dancers perform a traditional Chinese dance signifying good fortune to kick off the race. Throughout the course, participants will pass some of Uptown’s historic attractions and continue along the Chicago lakefront. Lastly, finishers will have the opportunity to participate in a post-race block party, where they’ll receive dim sum and bubble tea while enjoying performances by CMAA’s youth dance troupes. Through this event, CMAA endeavors for people from Chicagoland to experience the heritage and diversity of Uptown and its residents.
