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.
We have participated in a number of half marathons over the past three years, and we decided we were ready to run a full marathon. We are originally from Chicago and we love the city. For this reason, we thought it would be a great first marathon to run, and luckily, it is also the 40th anniversary of the race!
The United States is country of opportunity and a land of immigrants. We wanted to work with an organization like Latinos Progresando that supports the progress of diverse communities to help all achieve a successful and happy life.
