Launch U wrote -The Launch U Bank of America Marathon Team is comprised of individuals who want to make a difference in a student's life. In the United States, 54% of students enrolled in college will drop out, and only 11% of low-income students will graduate. The Launch U runners will help raise money to help our Chicago’s youth go to college and achieve their post-secondary dreams. Every $500 raised allows Launch U to pair a Chicago high school senior with a young professional to help guide them through the college application and career exploration process. Thank you so much for your consideration in supporting Launch U and our our Bank of America Marathon Team.
