Bank of America Chicago Marathon

Every year, dedicated athletes make a monumental commitment to Center for Independent Futures: to run 26.2 miles and raise funds for our programs and services. As an official member of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon Charity Program, we offer guaranteed race entries for runners who pledge to raise funds and awareness for our mission: to give individuals with disabilities and their families the skills and opportunities to realize a full life. Since 2007, Team CIF has raised over $100,000 by running for possibilities.

Are you interested in donating to our runners? Visit our fundraising page to meet Team CIF and support their hard work!

If you would like to cheer on Team CIF at the marathon along Charity Mile on Sunday, October 9th, contact Joanie Ducayet at (847) 328-2044 or
