Team Crossroads Runners is one of Old St. Patrick’s outward expressions of living our faith through serving those in need in our community. As a Crossroads Runner, you are joining a team of amazing, like-minded people who will be running to eradicate poverty and assist our neighbors who desperately need help.
Raising Funds For Charities Making A Difference
Provides professional, emotional, and spiritual support and training to those seeking a job, looking for meaningful work, or otherwise going through a career transition in their lives
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.
Crossroads Runners Is An Official Chicago Marathon Charity
Registering to run with us gives you guaranteed entry to the 2016 Bank of America Chicago Marathon
