Advocate supporters have the opportunity to come together and participate in the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon on Sunday, October 8, 2017 to raise funds to benefit patients and families in need.
Running for charity can be the motivation you need to get through the race- you are not just running for yourself, you are running to make a difference in the lives of others. By joining the “Inspired to Run” team, you will be a part of a diverse group of people who are supporting cancer research, helping children and adults with Down syndrome, giving back to the nurses and physicians who save lives each day and much more. Since 2011, our charity team has raised over $800,000 dollars for Advocate Health Care programs and services. Each runner can designate the hospital or program of their choice to receive the funds they raise.
Our team members are helping to ensure that over one million people have access to world-class care close to their home. Not only will your support those in need, you will inspire your friends, family and coworkers to give back to themselves and others.
