Thanks for choosing to run for children in Africa! We are grateful for your patience as we step into the first ever lottery.

In the "Guaranteed Entry" registration process the Chicago Marathon, it will say that you have to raise at least $1,000 for a charity and at least $1,500 for those who use "Late Entries".  That verbiage is there to protect our guaranteed entries from those who are not on Team World Vision.  Everyone on our team is going for at least $1,310 anyway (water for 1 person per mile).

Team World Vision empowers people to experience radical life transformation through endurance races, passionate advocacy, and social giving to promote fullness of life for every child - by tackling the root causes of poverty.

The Need

In Africa they say, “Water is Life.”About 768 million people in the world lack access to safe drinking water. It is the number one preventable cause of death in the world. Women and children often walk 6 miles or more each way two to three times a day to gather water that isn’t even safe to drink, water that could kill them.  Through Team World Vision, $50 will provide clean water for one person for a lifetime!

The Challenge

Race and provide clean water for one person for every mile of the race!  We are challenging our athletes to do something BIG and have a huge impact.  Specifically, we are challenging them to run 26.2 miles to change 26 lives.  

World Vision has the largest privately funded water initiative on the continent of Africa.

Clean water is a problem for which there is a solution. World Vision is the leading organizations bringing clean/safe water to communities in Africa a sustainable way. When a community gains access to clean water:
