The Mission of the Austin P.O.W.E.R. is to promote area residents, businesses and organization who come together in order to develop greater opportunity for and within the Austin Community.

The 2015 inaugural 5K was more than anyone could have imagined. While the hope was to draw 250 participants to take part in the event, it was a wonderful surprise when close to 600 friends, family, elected official [including the City of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel came out to take part in support of the community event. The weather was perfect. Music filled the air. Fun was had by all.

This year’s Austin POWER of Life Event will take place on Saturday, September 24th and will consist of the Austin POWER 5K Walk/Run and Marketplace Festival. With an anticipated crowd of more than 1,000 participants and spectators, we hope that you will come out in support.
