LPT Member Benefits


RHA has secured spots for the 2023 Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 8, 2023. By securing your spot with RHA, you forfeit your entry through the marathon’s lottery drawing held November 17, 2022. As a member of the Lung Power Team™ runners and walkers, you agree to raise a minimum of $1,250 if you register pre-lottery and $1,750 if you register post-lottery.

If you have already registered for the 2023 Bank of America Chicago Marathon and join the Lung Power Team, you agree to raise a minimum of $650 in donations.


Are you running a different race in 2023? Join the Lung Power Team for complimentary training, not to mention motivation, camaraderie and support. You agree to raise a minimum of $400. You’ll also need to register for your chosen race and pay any race fees.


One of the most valuable Lung Power Team member benefits is your choice of complimentary training programs. Click here to learn more about the Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA), Chicago Endurance Sports (CES), and virtual training.


As a Bank of America Chicago Marathon or race of your choice charity runner, we believe what sets the Lung Power Team apart is RHA’s fundraising support.

In addition to your own fundraising page and a complete guide to fundraising, your RHA fundraising coach will provide lots of personalized tips and ideas to help you reach your goal, plus encourage you with great incentive prizes.


Whether you are running a race of your choice or the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, you’ll receive a pre-race goody bag. If you are running a race of your choice, your goody bag will be mailed to you.


A highlight for Lung Power Team members each year is RHA’s Lung Power Team pasta dinner just before the Bank of America Chicago Marathon – mark your calendar now for Friday, October 6, 2023.

Team members, RHA staff and LPT volunteers gather at a local restaurant to meet and renew friendships, enjoy a delicious meal, and share racing tips and stories of inspiration.

Running a race of your choice on another day? We hope you’ll still join us on October 6 to meet your fellow team members and be part of this special night.


Wear your Lung Power Team Singlet with pride! Let your fellow athletes and race spectators know you are running for health lungs.  The comfortable, sleeveless cotton top has space to add your name and comes in your choice of adult t-shirt sizes.

You’ll also receive a Lung Power Team t-shirt to proudly wear anytime.


The Bank of America Chicago Marathon’s Charity Row is situated along the course’s 14th mile. It’s also conveniently located just blocks from RHA’s office at 1440 W. Washington Blvd in the West Loop.

From the RHA Lung Power Team booth on Charity Row, we’ll be tracking you every step of the race and waiting to provide you with beverages, snacks and all-important photo opportunities as you run by!

Your family and friends are welcome to park for free in RHA’s parking lot and then enjoy the race with us in the LPT booth. Or encourage them to stop by as they track you along the course.


Register for any Lung Power Team category and you’ll receive one complimentary, full climb spot at Hustle Chicago, Chicago’s world class stair climb for the 2023 event.

Michigan Avenue, enjoy your victory at the finish line in 360Chicago and check out some amazing city views, then hit the post-party for food, beverages and more at the nearby Hilton Chicago Magnificent Mile Suites.
