The 2012 Bank of America Chicago Marathon sold out in record time, but a limited number of entries are still available through the Charity Program. Every year thousands of runners take to the streets of Chicago for a cause much greater than their own. We invite you to join the fundraising effort at the 2012 Bank of America Chicago Marathon and make a difference through your participation in this year’s race.
If you have yet to sign-up for the sold-out 2012 Bank of America Chicago Marathon, you can still do so by running on behalf of a charity. To find out which charities have entries available, visit the Run for Charity page.
If you are already registered, you can still opt to run for charity by signing on with one of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon’s affiliated nonprofits. Visit the Charity Program page for a complete list of charities, and contact the organizations directly to find out how you can contribute to their cause.
