THE STORY:

 

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.


ABOUT ME

Only a few months ago, running a marathon had never crossed my mind. But after seeing it done by some friends, and seeing that it could be done for worthwhile causes, I decided I needed a challenge for 2017. Discipline, camaraderie, and enjoying the journey all played a part in getting me moving.

I am not Latino. But having married into a family from Guadalajara, Mexico, I sense a certain affinity with my Latino/a neighbors. I've been closer than others like me to some of the joys and struggles of these communities. I come as an outsider and an ally, and I'm honored to do my part to support my Latino/a neighbors. "Run 4 Latinos" is just another way to share life with this community. Happy to be on board!
