Leave your mark: The Bank of America Chicago Marathon 2009
The Bank of America Chicago Marathon has been a classic event for several years. The October marathon attracts tens of thousands of runners and spectators with numerous charities gaining benefit from the huge economic impact it brings to the city. At the footprints website runners and supporters can this year create customised running shoe treads with personal images and messages. For each shoe tread submission, Bank of American plans to donate $1 to one charity from among 25 listed at the site. Each shoe tread designer can designate the charity to benefit from his or her creation. Plus, the charity with the most submissions receives a $10,000 bonus.
