BENEFITING: ORGANIZATION FOR AUTISM RESEARCH

EVENT: 2017 Chicago Marathon RUN FOR AUTISM

EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017

Candice Xu

THE STORY:

The Organization for Autism Research (OAR) is an Official Charity with the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and has a limited number of guaranteed entries available for the race on October 8, 2017.

 

To join the RUN FOR AUTISM team, click "SET UP YOUR FUNDRAISER".

 

REGISTRATION OPTIONS:

To receive guaranteed race entry though OAR, you must agree to the fundraising requirement set by the race:

  1. Runners who register for the race with a charity entry prior to the drawing (Oct. 25 - Nov. 29) will receive complimentary race entry ($195-$210 value) and must commit to a $1,000 fundraising minimum.
  2. Runners who register for the race with a charity entry after the drawing is selected (Dec. 13) must commit to a $1,500 fundraising minimum.

The fundraising deadline is one month after the race (Nov. 8, 2017).

*By agreeing to the fundraising requirement and verifying his/her credit card information, runners are assuming full responsibility for achieving their fundraising minimum in full, even in the case of unforeseen circumstances including injury, which may prevent them from participating in the event.

 

Signing up on CrowdRise reserves your spot on the OAR team. Once you have completed the steps on CrowdRise, a member of the RUN staff will reach out and send you the link to register through the Chicago Marathon website.

 

To fundraise for OAR without receiving guaranteed race entry, join the team with no required fundraising minimum. (This option is for legacy runners, time qualifiers, 2016 deferments, or those selected through the drawing in December).
