Run Mag Mile® 5K & 10K Charity Partnership
The Chicago Help InitiativeSupport the homeless in your local community when you run for a cause with the Run Mag Mile® 5K & 10K benefiting charity partner, the The Chicago Help Initiative!
The Chicago Help Initiative is a hyperlocal not-for-profit that provides hot meals, access to resources and support through positive peer groups for homeless and those in need.
They believe that each element of what is provided is essential to every individual building a better life – by being in places that respect our dignity, grant access to the resources that we lack, and live within relationships that give us the comfort and resilience that come from connection.
The Chicago Help Initiative also focuses on being a part of building up whole neighborhoods that they work in – directly assisting homeless and others that seek help at community meal and food pantries of their choice, while training volunteers with local organizations to be the ones helping, both strengthening the organization they volunteer for while adding resilience and capacity at a hyper local level. Currently, you can find them in seven locations in different neighborhoods, expanding to 12 by the end of 2023.
