Make your "best time" theirs... Run for CKMC and become a Cooley Kicker!

Are you a runner? Maybe just starting up? Support our fundraising efforts by becoming a charity runner for CKMC!

We are returning to the 2013 Chicago Half Marathon as a participating charity!

The 17th annual Chicago Half Marathon & 5K takes place on Sunday, September 8, 2013! In 2012, our charity runners raised $11,341.00 for CKMC's Kiss of HOPE Program! We hope to double that this year and meet our collective goal of $20,000! Join our team today and help us get there!

Teaming with CKMC has it's benefits! Each CKMC charity runner will receive:

~ Guaranteed registration in the Chicago 1/2 Marathon or 5K

~ An awesome team running shirt

~ Online personal fundraising page that you can share with your friends and family

~ Invitation for you and a guest to a pre-race pasta dinner

~ Private access to our race tent with food, drinks, massages, bag check, and port-a-potty

~ Our tent is a great meeting place post race for your family!

~ Group training opportunities will be offered

To help meet our fundraising goals, there is a minimum fundraising requirement to run for CKMC
