Powering Chicago's running traditions, year after year

Chicago always goes the distance, and that's why we're proud sponsors of three iconic Windy City races. From on-the-ground volunteers to community engagement and race support, we celebrate Chicago spirit from the starting line to the finish line.

Committed to Chicago

At Bank of America, we're proud to show up for Chicago. The Bank of America Chicago Marathon alone generates over $380 million a year in economic impact for the city. Our ongoing commitment to Chicago goes beyond that with our partnerships with local leaders, organizations and charities which lead to meaningful grassroots change for the people and communities that need it most.

Let’s build something together

When our communities are faced with adversity, we're there to answer the call. This was particularly true when the health crisis hit home, and hard. We took action providing significant relief funds to frontline caregivers for medical equipment and materials to help them combat the virus and support families affected. Relief was targeted in communities of color, who have seen disproportionately high rates of impact. Additional grants were made to the local tech industry to innovate solutions through the pandemic and support the economic stability of startup businesses. To help kids stay in school, we worked with city colleges across Chicago to provide emergency funds for students at risk of dropping out. Moving forward, we're focusing our efforts on initiatives that accelerate economic recovery for Black and Latinx communities and supporting long-term change.
