Information for Bank of America Chicago Marathon Participants
Running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 13, 2013? Join the Race to Stop MS team and run on behalf of the National MS Society, Greater Illinois Chapter!
Race to Stop MS Benefits:
Here's how it works.
Step One: First, you register with the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.
Step Two: Then, come back here and register for Race to Stop MS. Just click the Register link at the top of the left sidebar on any Race to Stop MS page.
Step Three: Once you're fully registered, you'll have access to the National MS Society's online tools to help you reach out to family, friends, and associates, tell your personal story, raise funds, and keep track of your fundraising efforts.
That's all there is to it!
We ask that you commit to a suggested fundraising minimum of $300**--but we encourage you to raise all you can! Monies raised through Race to Stop MS help the Greater Illinois Chapter fund programs, services, and cutting-edge research to benefit the 20,000 people living with MS in Illinois.
Greater Illinois Chapter staff are always available to answer your questions and help you register and use our fundraising tools. If you need help, contact us.
(**Note: Post-close Chicago Marathon participants are required to raise a minimum of $1,000 by race day.)
