The Community House is actively recruiting runners of all experience levels to join our team and help raise money and awareness for our Counseling Center. The Community House is hoping that each “Mind Over Miles” team member will raise $500, or more, for our mental health Counseling Center. Each dollar raised will enable

The Community House’s Counseling Center to continue to provide the highest quality and affordable mental health services to low- and moderate-income families who might otherwise be unable to afford the care that they need.

Team members will avail themselves of a variety of benefits including:

  • Guaranteed admission to the 2013 Chicago Half Marathon being held on September 8, 2013 at Jackson Park
  • Discount on Chicago 5K/Half Marathon registration fee
  • An official high performance “Mind Over Miles” team t-shirt
  • The opportunity to train “mindfully” with renowned coach, Sara Fix, co-owner and coach from Endure It! Sports (Willowbrook and Naperville).
  • Customized training program and running itinerary suited for your pace

We understand that there are many worthy charities to choose from when running a marathon, so we wanted to create a program that offers team member benefits for runners of all experience levels to improve their overall health and skills. Our team members can take pride in knowing that every step they take is getting us closer to our personal goals…and those of others, too!
