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.
After my first 1/2 marathon in 2011, I decided I would run one marathon and it would be the Chicago Marathon.
Since I used to volunteer/work with LP when I lived in Chicago back in 2004-2005 (and I have since always supported their mission to serve the immigrant community), 'Run 4 Latinos' was simply the best thing that could have happened. This effort helps me cross an item from my bucket list while supporting a great organization I hold dear to my heart.
