The 5K walk/run allows race participants to designate which participating organization will receive the proceeds of their race registration fee and any fundraising they do.

Registration fee for racers until March 31 is $30, with 10 and under $15. The registration fee increases April 1 to $35. Registration is at www.mchumanrace.org.

The Human Race, a 5K walk/run, organized by Volunteer Center McHenry County, is an annual event that raises money to benefit local charities and promote volunteerism. In its first three years the race has raised $222,000 and helped over 60 organizations.
