2018 Bank of America Chicago Marathon

Team Jay's Hope

Why We Are Running for Jay's Hope

On October 7th, we will be representing Jay's Hope and Advocate Health Care at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon! As members of Team Jay's Hope, we will be training, fundraising, and ultimately running 26.2 miles to honor Jay Burger and raise funds for college students and recent graduates battling cancer.

Jay lost his battle to bone cancer June 25, 2016. He inspired so many with not only his courageous fight, but his zest for life. His determination to push through obstacles and to continue to live his life to the fullest gives each of us the strength to push through our training and to honor him through offering hope to others battling this devastating disease.

You too can support Jay's Hope by supporting our team's efforts to fundraise. Your donation of any amount will not only help us achieve our goals, but will help to ensure that other young adults battling cancer are offered hope and strength as they journey through their treatment.

Thank you!
