Tackling Poverty & Building Community

Most organizations tackling social problems don’t have access to the marketing, technology, management or strategic planning resources they need to succeed.

Funds raised by Crossroads Runners provide these much-needed resources to a number of local charities tackling the root causes of poverty.

Our charity partners rely on funds raised through events like the Bank of America Chicago Marathon to continue tackling critical issues like the homelessness, unemployment and education.
