This year, with your help, we will expand the program to engage even more young people in this enriching opportunity.

The LES 5K Revel Run is our biggest fundraiser for University Settlement’s after school program. If you can’t attend but want to support this effort, your money will be invested directly into our partnership with students at East Side Community High School, to offer engaging internships that will support their growth as they look toward post-secondary success.

And if you’re not going to be in town with us that’s ok. You can still participate, and we’d love to have you! You can run, walk, skip or jump the 5k from wherever you are. To join us online, post a picture or video of you supporting this great cause on your social media platforms with the hashtag #LESRevelRun2024.
