Help keep Lincoln Park Zoo free and open to the public 365 days a year by participating in their 40th annual Run for the Zoo with both 10K and 5K courses. Strollers are allowed for each, but must start at the back. If your sidekick doesn’t want to go the distance, she might be swayed to try the obstacle course challenge for those ages 8 and younger. Called Safari Stampede, it spurs kids to balance like a flamingo, hop like a toad, crawl like a grizzly and jump like a lion. Be sure to stay for the post-race celebration on the zoo’s Main Mall including snacks, a free beer and DJ tunes.
