Make Your Miles Mean More in 2017

October 25, 2016

The course of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon travels 26.2 miles through the streets of the city. Every mile is a chance to test your strength and achieve your goals. For runners on Team CIF, those miles mean even more.

As an official member of the 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 20017, Team CIF has raised over $100,000 by running for possibilities.

When you join Team CIF, you’ll become part of a community that values all dreams and will provide you with one-on-one support along your path toward realizing a dream of your own. During your training, you’ll engage with our dedicated staff, meet Center for Independent Futures community members, and see the difference your efforts are making.

Not sure you’re ready for a full marathon? To celebrate Team CIF’s tenth anniversary, our community is also participating in the Chicago Half Marathon & 5K on September 24, 2017. No matter what your running goal is, make your miles mean more by running with Team CIF to support the hopes and dreams of individuals with disabilities.
