The 2011 Chicago Marathon is quickly approaching. On October 9, thousands of competitors will weave 26.2 miles through the streets of Chicago for the annual event. For the third year in a row, Access Living will be a part of the Marathon. More than 20 athletes have joined the Access Living Marathon Team and each one is busy training for race day.
In addition to preparing for the race, the participants are also helping Access Living. We are excited to have a team of runners that is working hard to fundraise $900 for Access Living's programs and services. You can be a part of this effort. You can help our runners meet their fundraising goals.
Visit the “related links” section of this page to donate to the 2011 Access Living Bank of America Chicago Marathon Team.
In 2011, a donation to a member of the Marathon Team could go double as far. Since an anonymous foundation has gifted us with a matching challenge grant, your donation could even give Access Living twice the dollars! Support our programs by supporting our marathon athletes.
Join the Team on Sunday, October 9
