The Essence of Freedom 5K

For the last five years, hundreds of runners and thousands of spectators have lined the streets of Deerfield, Ill. on Memorial Day for the Essence of Freedom Run. The run is the signature fundraising event for Support Our Soldiers Freedom, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization. Proceeds from the run provide support to active duty military and veterans for expenses not covered by military benefits.

The 2019 event is a 5k race that will include chip timing, t-shirts, goodie bags, music and food. Not a runner? That’s okay. Walkers are welcome to participate! Start your Memorial Day by honoring the brave men and women who have lost their lives protecting our freedom.
