30th Annual LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon
Sunday October 7, 2007

Join Team VDF and Run for your Legs ... and your life


VDF has once again been selected as an official Associated Charity for the LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon.  We are so excited to participate in such an event!  This year the marathon has raised the maximum number of runners to 45,000 runners and we would love for you to join Team VDF!

Our goal is $25,000 and by sponsoring a runner or donating to VDF, you can help raise awareness about vascular disease.  Visit our team site, where you can access the individual Web pages of our team members and make a donation. All donations are tax deductible!   Running a marathon is hard work and the runners that make up Team VDF could certainly use your support and encouragement. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this great cause.

Contact us by e-mail or at 1.888.VDF.4INFO if you would like more information about Team VDF or sign up online today!

Join Team VDF!

To become a member of Team VDF, runners pay a $35 tax deductible registration fee and receive a team t-shirt, singlet and a goody bag. Once they are registered with Team VDF they must commit to raising a minimum of $150 towards vascular disease education. Participants who raise more than the minimum will be eligible for prizes such as gift cards and clothing. Fundraising support and encouragement will be provided by VDF along the way.

Join Team VDF today by filling out our online registration form. Thank you for your support!
