The Bank of America Chicago Marathon!

The Bank of America Chicago Mararthon!

The Get Kids Going! team had not one, but two fantastic races on Sunday October 11, 2009. A small Get Kids Going! team participated in The Bank of America Chicago Marathon through Chicago’s beautiful Grant Park. The Get Kids Going! charity had 8 gracious runners who flew from England to America to raise money for our disabled children.

The weather, unlike the past two years, was cold, hovering around -4 C, but was good for running. Get Kids Going! Runner and Chicago Marathon participant Steve Clark told Get Kids Going! that, “people handled the weather well. Once you got started running your body warmed up.” Over 35,000 runners participated in this year’s race, and the amount of money raised during the marathon has not been counted yet. But Get Kids Going! hopes to have raised over £5,000 pounds. Sign up for next year's race by calling Get Kids Going! at 020 7481 8110
