***Our Run with Heart team is FULL for the 2018 Bank of America Chicago Marathon season. THANK YOU to everyone who will be racing with us this Fall. If you would still like to join our team and help us raise funding and awareness for heart disease and stroke, you are welcome to do so—we can’t offer you an entry to the marathon, but we know if you found your way to our team site you are passionate about our mission, and we’d love for you to be involved this year. If you’re looking for an entry to the race, we may be granted additional entries later this Spring—you can always check back with us then!***
Every 2 Seconds, someone around the world dies from cardiovascular disease.
Over 75% of cardiovascular disease deaths take place in low and middle-income neighborhoods and countries.
The global cost of cardiovascular disease is $900 billion and will exceed $1 trillion by 2030.
Team Run with Heart is making a difference in the fight against cardiovascular disease and stroke. Join our team this fall and make your Bank of America Chicago Marathon about more than the 26.2 miles - run to help end heart disease and stroke.
Runners who join a charity team commit to raising $1,500 for the American Heart Association's mission in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.
Our members receive:
- Comprehensive in-person or virtual marathon training program with Chicago Endurance Sports
- Personalized fundraising web page and social media support
- Official American Heart Association Running Team dry fit shirt
- Email newsletters with day of event information, fundraising tips, training tips and more
- Special plaque designating your accomplishment
Thanks to all our participants, donors and volunteers who have accepted the challenge to help fight heart disease and stroke. We cannot achieve our mission without each one of you!
