The remaining 25 percent will be added to Komen's national program coffers, which benefits the foundation as a whole.

You can participate in the race solo or as part of a team. There will be a Team Tailgate area provided to give teams a place to gather both before and after the race.

The Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival is Coming Soon

The Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival in Chicago

 Labor Day weekend will bring back one of the most eventful festivals in Chicago

It's once again time to get an early jump on the fall shopping season with The Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival taking place from September 4-7 in Chicago

There are always great things to do in Chicago along the Magnificent Mile, which is why the excitement for this event grows with each passing year. The thrills are a way to give a rousing sendoff to another glorious summer with fashion shows, appearances by celebrities and some great music at outdoor concerts. There are also in-store events that afford visitors the chance to take advantage of some perks while shopping in Chicago. In addition, the many restaurants in this select area of the city will offer events and tastings that allow you to sample some incredible cuisine that is second to none.

The central component of this extravaganza will be the women's half-marathon and 5K that takes place on Sunday, September 6, 2015. Here, runners will get the chance to get a healthy run in while being able to take in the beautiful surroundings of this iconic portion of the Windy City.

Since finding the right place to stay in Chicago can limit the amount of money you can use during your trip, it makes sense to look just outside of the city for lodging that's just as comfortable and at a portion of the price. We here at the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg, Chicago would love to be your home away from home during this event. Not only are plenty of rooms available, but we also offer room to stretch out after a long day of shopping for great deals.
