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!

We are impressed and grateful to every one of the Team CCO marathon runners who trained, fundraised and raised homeless awareness for Cornerstone families and single adults! We also want to thank everyone who joined us in the Charity Block cheer tent! Of course, we can’t forget all those who donated to CCO through our fabulous runners!
