To run the Bank of America Chicago Marathon with Opportunity Enterprises as a post-close runner, contact the Team Coordinator, Alyse Kominakis, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 219-464-9621, ext. 233. Located in Northwest Indiana, this is our 15th year as a marathon charity, and we work with runners all over the country and the world! Runners are required to pay $200 to reserve your spot, and then fundraise the remaining $550 of the $750 minimum by September 13. We encourage our runners to go above and beyond the minimum requirements, and this year, we’re asking that everyone make it their goal to raise $1000. This may seem like a lot, but if you begin fundraising when you register in March and finish on race day in October, it’s only $125/month! See the Fundraising Chart 8 with some fun ideas to jumpstart your fundraising, but the best tool will be your online fundraising page, powered by CrowdRise. CrowdRise info will tell you everything you will need to know about setting up your page. It’s really easy, and it’s a great site to drive your donors to for online donations and updates on your training!
