Who are we running for?

The Launch U Chicago Marathon Team will fundraise on behalf of our Chicago’s youth in an effort to guide them to college and achieve their post-secondary dreams. Each member of the team will be supported by Launch U scholars, with opportunities to personally meet and discover the inspiring student stories they are running on behalf of. The Launch U program will aid the team of runners by providing marathon training schedules, course strategies, dietary tips, and inspirational messages.
