last year 27 runners joined the Team YEF challenge by signing up to run in the Advocate Health Care Fox Valley Marathon.  Will you join us to make a bigger impact in 2019?


Become a charity hero by getting involved with Team YEF at the Fox Valley Marathon on September 22nd, 2019! Whether you’re an experienced long distance runner or just want to walk or run 1.2 miles on race day, we have several options for you to join Team YEF. Not able to join the race? You can support our runners by helping them reach their fundraising goal or by volunteering to help on race day.

Together, Team YEF Runners raised nearly $7,300 in 2018, exceeding our fundraising goal by 40%. $2,500 of the money raised is invested back into the runners schools, purchasing books and makerspace supplies at our schools. The remaining money funded Foundation priorities including education grants, and YEF’s annual “Fostering Our Future” awards.  This year we have set a goal of $11,500 and we need your help to reach that goal.
