Join Team CIF to Run for Hopes and Dreams

February 25, 2016

This year marks the tenth anniversary of runners representing Center for Independent Futures in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Over the past decade, Team CIF has run thousands of miles and raised over $100,000 to support the hopes and dreams of individuals with disabilities and their family members.

Our runners have come from California to New York to right here in Evanston and include first-time racers and veterans. If you or anyone you know has ever dreamed of running a marathon, Center for Independent Futures can give you the support you need to make that dream a reality.

Connecting with our community will turn your race into a meaningful, supportive experience like nothing else. Team CIF runners access these benefits and more:

  • Guaranteed race entry
  • Individualized fundraising support
  • Fundraising incentives, including opportunities to earn a refund of your marathon registration fee
  • Discounted membership in the Chicago Area Runners Association, which offers group training programs at all levels
  • Two free tickets to our fall fundraiser, Something's Cooking
  • Invitation to our pre-race pasta party and support from a dedicated cheering squad at the race
