DO YOU NEED AN ENTRYThe Alzheimer's Association has filled all of our allotted entries. 

DO YOU HAVE YOUR OWN ENTRY via lottery, legacy, time qualifier or other - But still want to join our team?  We want you! 
Choose "OTHER" entry level:    There is no required fundraising minimum to join our team if you have your own entry, although to be eligible to participate in all weekend activities inclusing pasta dinner and race day space, we ask that you raise $650
 "Other with Training"  If you would like to participate in "in person" group training and participate in all weekend activities, we ask that you raise $850

The fundraising minimum for charities is set by the Chicago Marathon, and we offer our athletes the option to choose the fundraising minimum that is right for you. 
Note: In 2018, our team was FULL by February. Once we fill our team, we can not get additional entries. 

*If you are LOCAL and would like to add localized - in person training with either of our training partners, you may build that into your fundraising minimum. We are proud to partner with Chicago Endurance Sports (CES) and Chicago Area Training Association (CARA) If you are un-sure at this time, and would like to learn more, you may add the training at a later time.
