Good Luck
Jack's Chicago Marathon Team!  
Our marathoners connect closely with those who battle cancer and often are battling the disease themselves.  Fathers running for daughters, siblings supporting their sister, friends missing friends and a team captain praying for all of us.

Running for a cause is their way of making a difference.  Please take a moment to read their personal stories and support their fundraising efforts.   

We are so proud of each and every one of them and wish them great success as they take to the streets of Chicago on October 13.

We'll be there to cheer you on!

2013 Chicago Marathon Team
Strength. Passion. Focus.
Each year we ask our runners to share what drew them to Jack's Team and what motivates them to run the marathon.

It is always inspiring to learn their motivation.

Join us again at the corner of Adams and Des Plaines to cheer for Jack's Marathon Team.  

Look for the Angel Shoe balloons!

This is a block west of the halfway point (13.1 miles) of the marathon, so the team will be looking for our support as they tackle the next 13 miles. 

Thank you to Old St Patrick's Church for their continued support and partnership with Jack's Fund.
