Team U2FP is building its roster for next year - and we're looking for runners and wheelers to join our ranks for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon 2023.

Join Team U2FP!

As an official charity team for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon 2023, we provide guaranteed entries for the race in return for your commitment to fundraise for Spinal Cord Injury Research.

As a member of Team U2FP, you’ll train for your race while also spreading the word about our organization to your friends and family. We’ll be hosting virtual happy hours with our racers to get to know each other, share fundraising tips and learn about the important work U2FP is doing for the SCI community. Last year, racers raised over $50,000!

All Team U2FP Participants Receive:

  • A Personalized Fundraising Page
  • A Team U2FP Performance Shirt
  • A Fundraising Guide
  • Application Fee Reimbursed After the Race
  • Support Along the Way

These entries will go quickly, so sign up now!

Please consider joining us - then share this opportunity on your social media channels, with your friends and family, along with those in your work and faith communities. Training for a marathon while helping to advance curative therapies for those with an SCI is a great way to kick off the New Year!

Help us bring new folks into the SCI-led movement for functional recovery - whether they already have a connection to SCI or not.
