About This Event

The Bank of America Chicago Marathon is the pinnacle of achievement for elite athletes and everyday runners alike. On Sunday, October 13, 2013, runners from all 50 states and more than 100 countries will set out to accomplish a personal dream by reaching the finish line in Grant Park.

In 2011 five Members experiencing homelessness successfully completed the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Through training, determination, and a newfound belief in themselves, these Members achieved a goal that only a few months prior had seemed impossible. We captured the marathon journey of three of our Members on video. Your support will make it possible for us to provide much needed-assistance to those in our program like, Anthony, Issac and Wahid who are working hard to build a brighter future.
