BENEFITING: CHICAGO RUN
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017
One of our key strategies to giving back to our communities is the Bank of America Chicago Marathon which hosts thousands of runners who choose to make their Chicago marathon experience more meaningful by running on behalf of a charity. These runners begin their training with a number of personal goals, along with the goal of fundraising dollars for a worthy cause. With every step we take and every dollar we raise, we help organizations do important work in our local communities, and touch and improve lives of those in need. Again, our Bank of America/Merrill Lynch team will run the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on behalf of Chicago Run. Chicago Run is a local non-profit organization that is making a commitment to Chicago's children by improving the health and wellness of Chicago Public School students through free sustainable running programs. Through Chicago Run programs, students not only increase physical activity levels, acquire nutrition knowledge, build self-esteem and enhance cross-community collaboration. With limited options for physical activity, Chicago Run provides the opportunity for students to engage in physical fitness and begin taking the steps towards a lifetime of healthy living! Please join us in helping support this great organization.
