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 $1,000 each for our programs and services. As an official member of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon’s 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.
