THE STORY:

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.


ABOUT ME

I am running to prove I can. I have battled my weight my entire life, and even had gastric bypass In 2011 in an effort to lose weight. The bypass has helped me lose and keep off 80 pounds. In the process of losing weight, however, I learned that what had held me back wasn't my weight, but rather, what I thought was possible. I'm still not thin, I probably never will be, but I refuse to let my life be dictated by a number on a scale.


I decided that while I was smashing a personal barrier, I should help raise money for an organization that smashed barriers in the community. The work and reputation of Latinos Progresando is without parallel in the Latino community of Chicago. I am proud to be a part of an organization that is community-led, community-driven, and community-funded.
