3 Charity Program overview Charity Program overview Charity Program overview Since 2002, Bank of America Chicago Marathon participants have raised $100 million through the Charity Program. This feat is accomplished by individual participants who sign on to support an affiliated cause and commit to fundraising as a part of their Marathon journey. Every organization allows its team of runners the distinctive opportunity to make more of their Marathon experience by not only accomplishing a personal goal on race day, but by contributing to a larger goal and giving back to a worthy cause. For the Bank of America Chicago Marathon charities, their mission begins months in advance as they work to ensure that their runners accomplish their performance and fundraising goals. Each organization dedicates countless hours and resources to recruiting, planning and organizing their charity runner program. The experience begins with training runs for many of the runners along Chicago s lakefront path and suburban locations, team parties during the training season and pasta parties on race weekend. Charities focus on creating a memorable experience for their runners that lasts well beyond the finish line. In a sport that focuses on individual accomplishments, the Charity Program transforms the Marathon experience into a team endeavor. It is easy to see why so many runners return to their charity teams year after year. For a complete list of charities participating in this year s Bank of America Chicago Marathon Charity Program visit Richard M. Daley and Maggie Daley Award In 2010, the Bank of America Chicago Marathon announced the establishment of the Richard M. Daley and Maggie Daley Award. The award is given annually to the Chicago Marathon participant who raises the most funds for charity through their participation in the Chicago Marathon. John Nichols, was recognized as the 2012 award recipient earlier this year. Nichols raised more than $43,000 for the Spinal Cord Injury Association of Illinois (SCIA) through his participation in the 2012 Bank of America Chicago Marathon Award winner John Nichols Spinal Cord Injury Association of Illinois (SCIA) Dollars raised: $43, Award winner Dr. Jose Oberholzer Chicago Diabetes Project Dollars raised: $126, Award winner Carl Allegretti Children s Memorial Hospital Dollars raised: $81,000 Charity Program growth The Charity Program has grown from 14 charities with 1,674 runners in 2002 to 140 charities with 10,000 runners in Last year, charity runners raised an event record $15.3 million to fund causes ranging from healthier school initiatives, medical research and animal assistance to foreign aid/humanitarian efforts and assisting the families of those in the armed forces. The runners truly take the experience of the Chicago Marathon beyond the confines of Grant Park and change lives around the world

Athletes will compete on behalf of their respective high schools and as part of the larger Northside or Southside teams. The race starts at approximately Mile 24 where boys and girls will compete over the last 2.62 miles of the course ending at the Chicago Marathon finish line in Grant Park. Boys start at 7:40 a.m. and girls at 7:50 a.m. Charitable contributions Greater Chicago Food Depository The Bank of America Chicago Marathon will donate remaining food from the Runner Refreshment area to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.

6 Community programs Community leaders In partnership with the communities that comprise the Bank of America Chicago Marathon course, the Chicago Marathon works with local leadership to activate spectators and fans from surrounding homes, businesses, schools and community groups to enthusiastically support Marathon participants.
