You can be a Hero to children in need by running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon for Mercy Home. With every step you take, you’ll help give abused, neglected, and abandoned children a safe, loving home.

You can do it…and we’ll help

As a member of our Mercy Home Heroes team, we’ll make sure you have everything you need to reach the finish line. Not only will you receive entry to the sold-out race, but also a team of supporters beyond you every step of the way. As a part of our team, you will have access to free marathon training, Mercy Home Hero gear, personalized help with your fundraising, a delicious pasta dinner before the race, and much more. Your family and friends can join us at our campus in the West Loop to watch you fly by at miles 14 and 16! And on top of it all, you’ll be making a difference for some of Chicago’s kids who need it most.
