1 Corinthians 9:24:
“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.”



The 3rd Annual Charger Stampede 5K is here! This year we are asking participants to help us raise funds to support the Mission Advancement efforts of Illinois Lutheran Schools, and its ministry to share Jesus. More on that below.

When and Where

The 3rd Annual Charger Stampede will take place on Saturday, June 17, 2023 at Goodenow Grove Nature Preserve, located at 27064 Dutton Rd, Beecher, IL 60401. Registration will begin at 8:30 AM and the run begins at 9:00 AM. All participants will be required to sign a liability waiver at check-in, and we ask that you register online HERE in advance.

If you would like to order a t-shirt, please register online by June 3. T-shirts are $15 each and should be paid in cash or check to either school office by June 10. Participants that raise $100+ in pledges will receive their t-shirt for free, as long as they submit an order for one by June 3.

How it works

Registrants are being asked to collect pledges in advance of the race. Pledges are a fixed amount and not tied to distance or run time. Prizes will be awarded to participants who collect the most pledge dollars. 100% of proceeds go to support the Gospel ministry of Illinois Lutheran Schools.

Within a few days after you register online, you will receive an email from 99Pledges with a link to your individual pledge page. We strongly encourage that your pledges be made securely online, but if you do receive cash or check pledges, please turn them in on the day of the race at the registration table and not to the school office.
