Charity Runner Fundraising Commitments

For the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, each runner is responsible for setting a minimum fundraising goal of $1,250 before the drawing closes (11/16/23), or $1,800 after the drawing closes. All funds raised go directly to support Taller de José.


Runners are responsible for their own race registration and fee ($230, varies year to year), but are eligible to receive entry fee reimbursement upon meeting designated fundraising goals!
