About Us

Run for Prentice still has a LIMITED number of entries into the sold out Bank of America Chicago Marathon! To register, please visit

Run for Prentice is the fundraising initiative of Friends of Prentice in which individuals run and fundraise in support of Northwestern’s Prentice Women’s Hospital. The premiere race is the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, held in October, but participants can also sign up to fundraise for the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K in March.

In our first two years as a participating charity, we have raised nearly $300,000 to help support Friends of Prentice’s mission of saving the lives of woman & infants, bringing difficult pregnancies to term successfully, and advancing research on multiple fronts critical to women’s health. 2012 will be our third year as a participating charity and we are hoping to grow our team and increase our fundraising efforts.

As a member of the Run for Prentice marathon team, runners will receive full fundraising support, have access to a marathon training program, training runs, running related seminars, and complimentary race day gear check & post race massages.
