UIC Dance Team cheering on runners


Get your cheer on at Mile 17 of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon! The Chicago Diabetes Project is a charity located at UIC and we are looking to recruit volunteers to help cheer on runners at Mile 17 at this year's marathon. Noise makers and t-shirts will be provided.

We will be taking over Mile 17 which is located near the UIC Student Center East towards the corner of Halsted St and Taylor St.

This is a fun opportunity for volunteers (individual and groups) to fulfill service hours.
