On October 8th, Team Latinos ran a combined total of 420 miles at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.

On top of this remarkable performance, our team of runners has raised over $15,000 since the season began in the Spring.

Their incredible efforts, which have been complimented by the 2017 R4L Sponsor, Country Financial, benefit immigration and wellness programs that transform Latino lives across the Chicagoland area.

If you haven't had the chance to support their hard work, there's still time (crowdrise.com/R4L2017)!

Finally, if you want to run the 2018 Chicago Marathon, let us know (https://goo.gl/8yStBq)! Guaranteed entry slots will fill up soon.

You're invited to join Latinos Progresando as we cheer on our very own Team Latinos and other marathon runners this Sunday, October 8th.

The Burger King at 2328 South Michigan Avenue has kindly donated space at the 25th mile marker, one of the most exciting points of the race.

Between 9am and 4pm, we'll have a DJ on site, cheering signs, refreshments for runners, and tents generously provided by Country Financial, our 2017 Run 4 Latinos sponsor.

We hope you'll stop by to get in on the fun!

On September 13th, Latinos Progresando put on its fifth-annual MEX talks!

It would not have been possible without Esperanza Health Centers​, the 2017 MEX talks Title Sponsor, along with the 11 other community-focused groups who lent their support for this year's show. A huge thanks, also, to Goodman Theatre​ for hosting MEX talks and for creating such a wonderful experience for guests. Additionally, we are grateful to our incredible lineup of speakers--Carlos Ramirez-Rosa, Reyna Hernandez, Sergio Suárez, Adolfo Hernandez, and Maria Hinojosa.

See the event photos here: http://ow.ly/SBVr30fhbDR. Thank you for making events like MEX talks possible!
