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.
Latinos Progresando is a fantastic charity that’s every bit worth supporting at this moment in time. I've been a staff person at Latinos Progresando for the last two years, and my experience at the organization has given me the chance to see first-hand the way LP’s family-based immigration legal services transform lives.
I'm proud to take on my first-ever marathon and "Run 4 Latinos" because I believe that all communities, regardless of race or immigration status, deserve the resources necessary to thrive.
