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 2014 Chicago Half Marathon as a participating charity!

The 18th annual Chicago Half Marathon & 5K takes place on Sunday, September 7th, 2014! In 2013, our charity runners raised over $20,000 for CKMC's Kiss of HOPE Program! We hope to beat that this year and meet our collective goal of $30,000! 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 (CKMC Pays your 1/2 Marathon registration fee)

~ An awesome CKMC 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

~ Race morning shuttle to/from Jackson Park (meeting in Schaumburg)- let us do the driving!

~ 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
