Run 4 Latinos brings together a group of dedicated individuals to make a difference in the Latino community.
For four consecutive years, Latinos Progresando (LP) has organized the Run 4 Latinos campaign. Run 4 Latinos brings together a group of dedicated individuals, who collectively form “Team Latinos,” to run the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and make a difference in the Latino community.
In 2017, Team Latinos will be larger than ever. With a total of 23 guaranteed entry slots available, we are excited to offer our runners more resources (and more treats) to make running and fundraising as easy as possible. Beyond the perks offered by the Bank of America Chicago Marathon (think shirts, medals, and gift bags), individuals on Team Latinos will receive the following:
Guaranteed entry to the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon No entry fee, which otherwise costs $195
Official Run 4 Latinos dry-fit running shirt Customized fundraising page and promotional assistance
Post-race recovery gift set Friends & Family Cheering Section on race day
All proceeds from the Run 4 Latinos campaign benefit Latinos Progresando’s programs, including providing a path to legal residency and liberating and empowering immigrant victims of domestic violence through the VAWA Project. You can trust that, once you make it, your commitment will be broadly appreciated, by us and by the community.
Registration for Team Latinos is officially open, and there are two deadlines to keep in mind. Individuals who register before November 29, 2016 commit to raise $1,200, while individuals who register after November 29th commit to raise $1,500. The final deadline for all guaranteed entry registrations is January 18, 2017. Please contact us soon, as we expect slots to fill up quickly.
All interested runners should fill out the Run 4 Latinos 2017 form below or e-mail Anthony Balas at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll do our best to sign you up soon.
