Charity Program


Welcome to the 2023 Life Time Chicago Spring Half Marathon & 10K Charity Program. For over a decade, the Chicago Spring Half Marathon & 10K has partnered with charities that support a wide range of causes that focus on improving healthcare, youth development, social services, and much more! Keep the tradition going and become a charity partner with us today by registering your group via the link at the bottom of this page. We look forward to seeing you all on May 21, 2023.

In addition to the lives you will positively impact through your fundraising efforts, your group will also receive race perks to make your experience that much better! The first perk you and your athletes will receive is a discount of $10 off of your registration. After that, as your charity team grows, you will earn additional perks such as your own finish fest space and tent, comped codes for coaches or athletes, and VIP access.

*Please see the below chart for more details.

Partnership Levels

Below are the different levels of charity partnership, each based on the number of athletes participating under your charity. Final roster counts to earn race accommodations will be made on May 2, 2023, or when the race reaches capacity, whichever happens first.

*Please note, if your group will have less than 10 athletes registered, we will still recognize your charity’s partnership on our website.

When your charity accumulates 10 or more participants, you will receive a complimentary Finish Fest space with tent to act as your hangout destination post-race.

For every 20 participants that register under your charity, you will earn 1 fully comped discount code. This code can be distributed to anyone of your choosing (i.e. coaches, top fundraiser, etc.) Talk about an awesome perk!!

As a bonus for your participation, your charity will be highlighted on our social media platforms. These highlights can cover your charity’s mission, your fundraising goals, an athlete shout out, etc.

Your charity will earn complimentary access to the VIP Area when 20+ participants register under your charity. These tickets can be provided to anyone affiliated with your group (i.e. staff member, coach, top fundraiser, etc.) – In the past, charities have also used these tickets as a fundraising incentive prize or they also used them as a raffle to fundraise.

Raise the awareness of your charity’s mission and cause by reaching the thousands of athletes that participate on race day. In the past, charities have inserted an info card or items that help promote their organization.

If your charity requires additional equipment at the finish fest, please reach out to the program manager for more details.


The success of each race depends on thousands of volunteers. In this charity program, each charity partner is required to provide two (2) race weekend volunteers for every 10 charity participants per race.  

We look forward to a successful 2023 event with you! If you have any questions, please reach out to Jeremy Weitzman at
