Join Team CCO for the 2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon
Over 330 people stay at Cornerstone Community Outreach who are experiencing homelessness. What’s one way you can help them on their path to being housed?
Run a marathon!
Yes, that is a daunting task, but for those who decide to put one foot in front of the other, the path is there!
With Team CCO, our charity fitness crew, you can use your love of running to bring support to Cornerstone. Through fundraising, connecting with others to build awareness, and on course visibility, you can help a family get housed!
The 2019 Team CCO runners raised enough money combined to provide 4,195 nights of shelter for families experiencing homelessness. Our goal for 2020 is to raise enough for over 6,000 nights. Help us meet that goal, and meet your own too!
Commitment, motivation, and inspiration are just a few of the words that describe Team CCO at this year’s Bank of America Chicago Marathon! Every member of the team “wowed” us with their commitment to crossing the finish line. They motivated us to support homeless services and inspired us to give! We want to extend our deepest thanks to each member of the team who endured 26.2 miles to help families and individuals who are sheltered at CCO. Every step you took brought someone closer to permanent housing. You have truly inspired us!
We also want to thank the support team who cheered everyone on at the Charity Block Tent. Your encouragement kept the team on the road to the finish line!
