The Center for Advancing Domestic Peace, has partnered with a coalition of 9 Chicago area domestic violence agencies, and 2 affiliate members to help Run Domestic Violence Out of Town as an approved charity team for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 11, 2015.

In preparation for the “big day,” the Run DV Out of Town campaign has already recruited an impressive group of 50 runners who have been hard at work, training and soliciting sponsors for their collective fundraising effort. The money raised will go to support key services for those affected by domestic violence, from 24-hour crisis lines and shelter to counseling and community prevention programs. But, above all, the team’s strong presence at the marathon will send a message loud and clear that everyone has a role in preventing domestic violence – everyone can do something to help.

You can make a difference by sponsoring a runner for as little as $10, volunteering at the race, or participating in the Chicago Half Marathon & 5K on September 27th (registration deadline is August 1st).
