A MESSAGE FROM Steve
Hi! I’m Steve. As many of you know, I am a Founding Member and Fundraising Lead for Students Run Chicago (SRC), a section 501(c)(3) organization and a Public Charity per IRS Guidelines. Students Run Chicago promotes the growth and development of Chicago area high school students by providing equitable access to the training, community of running, and mentorship needed to complete running races of increasing distances, up to and including the Bank of America Chicago Marathon for those students looking for the ultimate running challenge. We are not a running club. We are a group that builds community by using running to show our students the benefits of healthy lifestyle choices, good decisions, and successful achievement of their personal goals. We are entering our tenth year as Team SRC! We have coached/mentored over 500 students during that time and nearly 200 of our students have successfully completed the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Without your assistance, our students would never have the resources on their own to train and run across Chicago each season. To outfit one student with gear, shoes, and race registrations costs roughly $700 per student per season. We look forward to growing our program in 2023 and your support is key to making our goals a reality. You are making a positive difference in the lives of the students in our program. The future looks bright and thank you!
