2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon


Support first-generation college students while running the
Bank of America Chicago Marathon!

The Bank of America Chicago Marathon is known for being flat and fast as it runs through 29 unique Chicago neighborhoods starting and ending in Grant Park. The 2017 Chicago Marathon takes place on Sunday, October 8th, and America Needs You (ANY) is one of the official charities of the Charity Program. Make each mile count by running for America Needs You – Illinois!

A limited number of guaranteed entries are available for runners as a part of the ANY team. Individuals on the ANY team will be part of an intimate community of runners racing for a cause. Each individual commits to raising at least $1,500 in support of ANY’s ambitious, first-generation college students.

If you are interested in joining our team, please contact Samantha Robinson, Illinois Program Manager, at samantha.robinson@americaneedsyou.org. Already have entry to the Chicago Marathon? You can still join our team and support our Fellows! Email Samantha to ask how.
