Sign Up for our 2013 Chicago Marathon AFHK Team Now
The 2012 Bank of America Chicago Marathon was a huge success for Team Healthy Kids, which is the running team for Action for Healthy Kids. We had 32 Team members that raised over $25,000 in support of nutrition and fitness programs for kids at school. Plus, we had a great time with Dean Karnazes, celebrity Ultra-Marathon Man, as he ran for us in the marathon.
Team Healthy Kids is forming another race team for the 2013 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. We’ve already had 8 people sign up and we want you to run with us next year too. Dean Karnazes is interested in running again with us next year! Remember, the 2012 Chicago Marathon sold out in 6 days and next year may sell out even sooner. Pre-register now by replying to ChicagoMarathon@ActionforHealthykids.org and requesting the pre-registration form.
