October 13th: Team Danny Did in the 2024 Chicago Marathon

The Danny Did Foundation is proud to be an official partner of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon for the 15th straight year. The event takes place on Sunday October 13th. Team Danny Did members participate in the marathon to raise funds and awareness for the Danny Did Foundation. We welcome runners from across the United States and the world to be a part of our team and to join us in advancing awareness of epilepsy and Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy, or SUDEP. To join our team or if you have questions, please email mduffy@dannydid.org. UPDATE: We are now sold out of our 2024 Chicago Marathon race entries. Please reach back to join us in 2025!
