Our mission is to promote the health and wellness of Chicago children through innovative, engaging, and sustainable youth running programs. We currently serve over 17,000 students throughout Chicago in 44 Chicago Public Schools. 84% of Chicago Run participants qualify for free or reduced lunch.
Chicago Run relies on private philanthropy (over 92% of the budget!) to provide these programs to Chicago youth, so that they can have the chance to be healthy and active. All donations help Chicago Run meet the demand and allow for more children in Chicago to get up and run!
Team Chicago Run members will truly add meaning to their miles by running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon in support of our programming. Your support is critical to our work. Thank you for joining us one step, one mile at a time!
Chicago Run respectfully asks all charity runners to adhere to the fundraising schedule outlined in the Registration.
On the fundraising deadline, Chicago Run will charge the difference between your fundraising balance on your Crowdrise fundraising page and the minimum fundraising amount due. If your fundraising balance is at or above the required minimum, your credit card will not be charged.
