Our mission is to promote the health and wellness of Chicago children through innovative, engaging, and sustainable youth running programs. Chicago Run serves over 18,000 students from 52 sites (majority of which are Chicago Public Schools) in 33 diverse neighborhoods across the city. 87% of Chicago Run participants qualify for the federal/free reduced lunch program and have limited opportunities for physical activity and play. Chicago Run relies on private philanthropy 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!
