CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - March 26, 2014) - Guaranteed Rate, one of the ten largest retail mortgage lenders in the U.S., is hosting its fourth annual Disco Dash 5K and 10K races on Thursday, June 26 at 6:30 p.m. at Soldier Field's Stadium Green, Chicago. The races will take place on a scenic lakefront course with the picturesque Chicago skyline as the backdrop.
This year, the event's special celebrity guest is home improvement expert and Guaranteed Rate national spokesperson Ty Pennington, who will be on hand to greet runners. After the race, one of the best parties of the summer will get underway, with food, drinks, and 70s disco band The Shagadelics providing the soundtrack for runners to dance the night away. As always, participants are encouraged to wear their favorite disco-era fashions, and prizes will be awarded to those who boogie to the finish line with the best costumes.
The 2014 Disco Dash benefits the Guaranteed Rate Foundation, which helps families in a meaningful and positive way in times of unexpected need. In 2013 alone, the Foundation donated more than $225,000 in assistance to families in the form of financial hardship assistance, medical bills, disaster relief funds and scholarships.
