Welcome to the Team TRUTH Run for One 2015,

This is our 4th year running the Chicago Half Marathon together!

You are invited to join Team TRUTH with Project HOPEFUL as we raise funds and awareness for in support of our mission to educate, encourage, and enable families and individuals to advocate for and adopt children with HIV/AIDS and other of the most overlooked children for adoption.

Together we will train for and participate in the Chicago Half Marathon on September 27, 2015. Why run with us? We can provide you with the community you need to succeed, training tips, and most importantly you will make a huge impact for children/ families around the world!

Not a runner? That’s alright! For many, this is their first running event. You CAN do it!

YOU WILL NEED TO COMPLETE TWO REGISTRATIONS: HERE and at the Chicago 1/2 marathon site.

This scenic 13.1 mile course will start and finish in Jackson Park and showcase the south lakefront, the Jackson Park Golf Course and the Midway Plaisance on the University of Chicago campus. The Lake Shore Drive stretch offers beautiful views of the great Chicago Skyline.  Participants must maintain a 13 minute per mile pace to participate in the half marathon.” Learn more at www.chicagohalfmarathon.com
