The Chicago Run Mission:

To promote the health and wellness of Chicago children and youth through innovative, engaging, and sustainable youth running programs!

Chicago Run provides over 18,000 children and youth with high-quality enriching physical activity programs. Our goal is to improve the physical fitness and social/emotional wellbeing of all our participants by following a Sports Based Youth Development model and using Trauma Sensitive coaches. Chicago Run’s programs reach the full continuum of childhood from early childhood through the teenage years.
