Team CARA runner finishing the 2023 Bank of America Chicago 13.1.

Make your half marathon miles even more meaningful by running on behalf of a charity team! The Bank of America Chicago 13.1 Charity Program features 11 charity partners that are creating a positive impact on Chicago’s West Side and throughout the city, each with a focus on empowering youth, advancing health equity and supporting community development. The goal of the program is to provide funds to support causes that align with the event’s vision of supporting the communities where we live, work and run.

Charity program entries are limited and available on a first-come first-served basis. Each charity manages its own unique charity team, participant benefits and fundraising requirements. While fundraising requirements may vary from charity to charity, participants are required to raise no less than $500 (USD).

Only charities that are part of the official Bank of America Chicago 13.1 Charity Program have access to guaranteed entries. 


If you have an entry into the event and wish to fundraise for an organization or charity of your choice you may do so through haku, the preferred fundraising platform of the Bank of America Chicago 13.1. Please contact them here.
