Join our running team!
Join Good News Partners running team as we take on the 16th Annual Chicago 1/2 Marathon and 5K and run to end homelessness and hopelessness.
The GNP running team is a perfect opportunity to partner with us and help raise awareness of the injustices happening in our own town. There will be two team runs leading up to the race that will encourage runners to become familiar with the GNP neighborhood and the mission behind our organization. We will also host a pasta party the evening before the race in which GNP residents will join in. This will provide opportunities for the running team to meet resident partners and build relationships with one another.
The race will take place on Sunday, September 9th 2012 at 7 a.m. All runners will also recieve a free t-shirt for race day!
For those who prefer shorter distances, there is also a 5K available. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to register and for more information.
Half marathon is $250 per runner and the 5K is $150 per runner.
If you are interested in being a part of this event, but do not wish to run, there are also opportunities to sponsor residents who will run in the race.
We would also like to thank "The Runners Edge" of Wilmette for sponsoring GNP in this years event.
