Chicago Run is a non-profit organization implementing and supporting youth running programs in Chicago Public Schools. Chicago Run currently serves over 13,400 students across 44 schools across the city. Students in the program engage in running or other vigorous physical activities for at least 15 minutes a day, three to five days a week.
Since 2010, Team Chicago Run has run the Bank of America Chicago Marathon to support Chicago Run. Over that time, Team Chicago Run has sponsored more than 5,500 students in the program. This year, Team Chicago Run will bring together more than 170 novice and veteran marathoners alike to support the health and well-being of Chicago children. The Chicago Run "Who RUNS Chicago?" Corporate Team Challenge features teams from companies across the Chicagoland area running as a group to support and promote Chicago Run's programs while competing for cool incentives.
