Run Because 2021

Winnetka, IL

Run BeCAUSE began in 2015 as a group of 10 high school athletes and friends with a passion for giving back to their community. Now in its sixth year, Run BeCAUSE consists of 21 members, and hopes to continue expanding its community outreach to a new group of high school students in the future. Run BeCAUSE is a charity run featuring a mile-long race benefiting Family Focus, who has proudly agreed to be the beneficiary for this year's sixth annual run. Run BeCAUSE hopes to unite everyone under the values of team spirit, friendship and generosity. Moreover, the Run BeCAUSE Committee aspires to motivate young athletes to grow up conscious of the importance and impact of giving back.

Family Focus is a local foundation based in Chicago IL, with locations spanning the Chicago area. In 2019, 100% of the proceeds of Run BeCAUSE were donated to the Evanston chapter of Family Focus, as will the proceeds of the 2021 race! Family Focus has shown amazing dedication towards promoting the well-being of children and unmatched generosity towards the Evanston community.

Join Run BeCAUSE this year to help give back to Family Focus and our community!
