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.
One of my biggest dreams since I moved to the U.S. was to run the Chicago Marathon. I always wanted to complete this challenge and motivate more people to do it. I love running and I can’t wait for this opportunity.
I decided to “Run 4 Latinos” because I admire all the work Latinos Progresando does for our Latino community, especially for the Latino youth. As a young professional working in education, running for Latinos Progresando is a way to support other youth, the community, and future leaders in achieving their dreams!
