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.
Running this marathon is a personal challenge―It's my first time! I want to train and be my best self to fulfill this lifetime goal.
I believe wholeheartedly in the mission of Latinos Progresando, and I want to be an example to other latinxs that no dream is out of reach. I want to give back to the latinx community in Chicago, and through this challenge, I want to raise awareness of the plight of nuestra comunidad.
