Misericordia Heartracers Team Gears Up for the 2021 Bank of America Chicago Marathon

Year after year, a dedicated team of charity runners supports Misericordia in ways that few others could ever imagine doing – running 26.2 miles through the streets and neighborhoods of Chicago to raise much-needed funds that benefit our children and adult residents.

From first-time marathoners to seasoned runners, each Misericordia Heartracer team member commits to raising between $1,250 and $1,750, depending on the date they register for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. This year the event is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, October 10, pending Covid-19 restrictions.

The Chicago Marathon has become a huge city tradition and international running event. Each year 10,000 charity runners representing more than 150 local, national and global charities raise millions of dollars. Our Misericordia team continues to grow every year, both in the number of runners – now up to 75 team members – and the amount of funds they raise – more than $165,000!

The last day to register as a charity runner for the 2021 Chicago Marathon is May 31, 2021, and there is still room for more runners to become part of our team!
