Lots of people want to get in better shape and do more to help people in need, but the issues can be overwhelming. Team World Vision empowers its team members to make a physical challenge -- like running a marathon -- even more meaningful by dedicating it to children in need.
Team World Vision participates in 11 Premier Events and additional small group events across the country. In just a few years we became the largest charity running team at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, one of the largest marathons in the United States.
In 2010, over 6,000 Team World Vision runners –- many of them completely new to running -- raised over $2.5 million to help communities in Africa and Haiti.
