If you are interested in running the sold-out Chicago Marathon, the Mercy Home Heroes have a spot for you. Since 1887, Mercy Home has been a solution for kids in crisis. With your support, we can continue the legacy of bringing healing and opportunity to hurting kids for years to come.
Our team provides a guaranteed entry, free training, fundraising support, Heroes gear and a pre-race pasta dinner. But the biggest perks come on race day. You will get a Hero’s welcome from friends, family and the children you’re helping as you run past Mercy Home at Mile 16. And our Hero HQ, just blocks from the start/finish lines, provides you with real indoor bathrooms (no long lines at the porta-potties), private gear check, prerace and postrace food, postrace massages and more! We will even shuttle your cheer squad from HQ to Mercy Home and back via trolley.
Become a partner in the great work that Mercy Home and Fleet Feet are doing to help kids in Chicago. You won’t regret it.
