LBP Manufacturing LLC (LBP) employees recently participated in the 12th annual at Hot Chocolate run. As many as 30,000 people ran through the streets of Chicago starting at 7:30 a.m. in Grant Park. As employees finished the run, they were treated to goody bags, a mug of hot chocolate, and treats on top of a huge celebration. More than 4,000 pounds of melted chocolate was prepared for each race. There were even “sweet stations” on the course that provide delicious mid-race snacks. This was the race’s 12th year in Chicago, which started with the inaugural Hot Chocolate race in 2008.
Make-A-Wish® is the official race charity of the Hot Chocolate 15k/5k! Make-A-Wish® creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child’s wish to life, because a wish is an integral part of a child’s treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness.
