ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
For five consecutive years, Latinos Progresando (LP) has organized the Run 4 Latinos campaign. Run 4 Latinos brings together a group of dedicated individuals, who collectively form “Team Latinos,” to run the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and make a difference in the Latino community.
In 2017, Team Latinos is larger than ever. With a total of 23 runners, we are excited to maximize our positive impact for the Latino community.
All proceeds from the Run 4 Latinos campaign will benefit Latinos Progresando’s programs, including providing a path to legal residency, and liberating and empowering immigrant victims of domestic violence through the VAWA Project.
Your support of our runners goes a long way to ensuring that the community has access to the information and resources necessary to thrive.
Born and raised in Chicago, as a kid, I remember volunteering for the Chicago Marathon when it was still the LaSalle Marathon. As an adult, I'm excited to have the opportunity to run alongside fellow Chicagoans and people from around the world.
Now more than ever our communities need organizations like Latinos Progresando to support them and offer them a safe place. I chose to Run 4 Latinos because I wouldn't be the man I am today without organizations like Latinos Progresando stepping in and helping my parents get acclimated in this country. I chose to Run 4 all the amas and apas and all the kids who are looking for leaders who look like them to stand by them and for them in uncertain times.
