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.
The Chicago Marathon is a personal goal. I want to complete all majors marathon in the world and I chose Chicago as the place to start the journey.
When I was looking for options to run for charity, I chose R4L because my sister lived in Chicago for about 20 years, and I know how difficult was for her to find opportunities. It is good good to know that Latinos Progresando helps the Latino community to find those opportunities through this hard time in the U.S.
