ILPAMS 5K for Perú 2017

We are ILPAMS, a chapter of PAMS (Peruvian American Medical Society) Peruvian and American health care professionals and volunteers from Illinois who organize medical and educational missions to villages in Peru with little or no access to medical and educational facilities and services.

At this time, we are working in tandem with the PAMS to provide urgently needed humanitarian help to the underserved populations that are suffering so much with the heavy rain, flooding, mud slight (huaicos) and destruction caused by the “El Niño” phenomenon in Peru. For this purpose, we are holding our 5th Annual 5K for Peru Fundraising Event to continue to provide free medical assistance and donations consisting of food, drinking water, insect repellent, medicines, among others. 

Runners and walkers are invited to participate on August 13, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. We encourage you to participate with friends, family or if you want to volunteer you are welcome too!


Together we can make a difference in the life of those that have lost everything.


Please if you have any questions don’t hesitate in contacting Robert Mendez at
