BENEFITING: CARA PROGRAM
EVENT DATE: Apr 07, 2013
The Chicago-Kent Sportfeasors & Society of Women in Law are teaming up again to run the 2013 Bank of American Shamrock Shuffle 8k! This year, we are honored to fundraise for CARA (Chicago Area Runners Association) to help support the Road Scholars program.
CARA Road Scholars is an innovative approach to inspiring excellence in Chicago youth. This intervention program challenges teens to train for and complete a half marathon. Road Scholars uses running to teach at risk youth important lessons in commitment, dedication, and discipline, while improving self esteem and worth.
The funds we raise as Charity Runners helps put at-risk teens in running shoes and apparel, provide half marathon training, transportation and pay for race entry fees to the Rock 'n' Roll Chicago Half Marathon.
