Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon has been canceled. But despite the loss of the signature event of our Heroes program, our mission will continue. We will continue to update our Mercy Home Heroes on our plans to run 26.2 miles no matter what on October 11.
Can’t go 26.2? We have a place for you! Become a Hero for our kids by completing your own custom challenge!
Our Heroes are an integral part of the Mercy Home family because they literally work miracles in the lives of our kids. Because of their dedication, they make it possible for our kids to learn all the necessary skills to succeed both in school and in life. We hope you will consider joining the ranks of those who make this possible!
