EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017
In 2017, runners competing in the 40th Anniversary of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon will rally together to raise over $200,000 for charity partner Bright Pink. $200,000 has the power to educate and potentially save the lives of nearly 80,000 young women through Bright Pink’s educational programs.
We run our for our moms, our sisters, our friends… ourselves. We believe the women we love deserve a world free from breast and ovarian cancer. Join us on this mission to save women’s lives.
Running a marathon has always been one of my biggest goals. It's an overwhelming feeling that it's finally becoming a reality. This marathon will mean more to me than just scratching something off my bucket list. Almost two years ago my grandfather passed away from breast (breast cancer is very rare in men) and prostate cancer. This run will be my biggest fight, and I plan to fight for the woman who have been battling breast cancer, and fight for my grandfather that lost his battle to breast cancer last May. Please help me surpass my goal and help in the fight against breast cancer by raising awareness, educating woman and men, and potentially help save lives!
