Girls on the Run-Chicago is an after-school program that uses the power of running to educate and prepare 3rd through 8th grade girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. The positive youth development program combines training for a non-competitive 5k (3.1 miles) running event with interactive lessons that encourage positive emotional, social, and physical development among young girls.
The Magnificent Mile® Chicago Women’s Half Marathon & 5K is excited to offer 501(c)(3) charities the opportunity to use this event as a fundraising vehicle. The event provides accepted charities with both a significant fundraising opportunity and great exposure to their cause.
