First - let me just say that I'm not the person who you hear say "I Love Running" - I actually run because I love to do Happy Hours and eat Hot Wings. Four years ago I signed up for my first 5K in Texas, I was so nervous about it, but I finished. Since then my running has continued to a 10K, a half-marathon, and now my second (God willing) Chicago Marathon!
These are tough times for the Latino community - for the immigrant community in general. The work that Latinos Progresando does at a ground level is more important than ever. My family and myself benefited from similar services and I want to make sure that as many families that need help, get it. This is my way of chipping in.
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.
