2016 marathon team

Bank of America Chicago Marathon
Sunday, October 8, 2017


Join Team Chicago Lights for 40th anniversary of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on Sunday, October 8, 2017.

Not only will you join a team of other enthusiastic, philanthropic individuals, you’ll also train with Fourth Presbyterian Church’s very own head pastor Shannon Kershner.

Team members commit to paying the registration fee ($195 in 2017) and raising at least $1,500 for Chicago Lights. If you join Team Chicago Lights and recruit a friend, you will receive a $100 fundraising credit to your goal. We’ll even reimburse your registration fee if you exceed your fundraising goal by $500.
