The Chicago Fire Foundation has been selected into the 2010 Bank of America Chicago Marathon Charity Program as an associate level charity for the 2010 Bank of American Chicago Marathon. Open registration for 2010 Chicago Marathon has officially closed, however, individuals are still eligible to sign up for the Chicago Marathon on behalf of the Chicago Fire Foundation, the charitable arm of the Chicago Fire Soccer Club.

On Sunday, October 10, 2010 runners from all 50 states and more than 100 countries will set out to complete the 33rd edition of the 26.2 mile race that begins and ends in Chicago’s historic Grant Park. The Chicago Fire Foundation will join more than 100 nonprofit organizations in an effort to raise funds in the name of charity. The funds raised during the 2010 Bank of American Chicago Marathon will help support the Chicago Fire Foundation’s mission of enriching the quality of life of the Chicagoland community, particularly its youth and continuing to support organizations whose programs fall in the areas of health and wellness, education and the environment.

Running on behalf of a charitable cause offers participants a unique and rewarding experience in addition to the accomplishment of completing a marathon itself.  In 2009, the hard work of the charities in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon Charity Program resulted, in a record 8,500 runners registered as part of a charity team and collectively raised $10 million for 123 organizations around the world.

The Chicago Fire Foundation still has a limited number of race entries available for the sold out 2010 Bank of America Chicago Marathon.
