RUNNING FOR COMFORT
The Comfort Fund provides financial assistance to medical patients and families, and military veterans with limited funds, who otherwise would not be able to afford temporary lodging while receiving medical treatment away from home. Lodging should never be a barrier to wellness.
If you secured your own entry for the 2023 Bank of America Chicago Marathon and want to support a charity team, we invite you to join Team IMDGH! If you join our charity team and raise a minimum of $625, you will receive a Team IMDGH running shirt. Get started by submitting an inquiry HERE.
The 2023 guaranteed charity entry individual fundraising minimum per participant:
$1,250 (before the close of the November 17th, 2022 application window)
$1,750 (after the close of the application window)
When you run with Team IMDGH, you will receive:
- An opportunity to provide comfort to medical patients and families, and military veterans who seek treatment away from home in Chicago
- Guaranteed entry into the 2023 Bank of America Chicago Marathon
(Entry cannot be deferred to 2024 or any other year)
