I chose to run the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon to push myself to be active and to prioritize my health. Someday, I won’t be able to do this kind of thing, so I want to make the most of it right now. Also, I really like to eat pizza.
I chose to Run 4 Lations largely as a result of the current political climate. I think immigrants and the diversity they bring are what makes America great and I wanted to support an organization that focuses on providing immigration legal services and social justice.
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.
