Join us on this epic journey!

Welcome to the Algonquin Runners Team Page.  We are multiple people, multiple churches, and multiple backgrounds, coming together to change the lives of children and families in Africa who lack access to clean water!  


We have a big goal! We want to raise $200,000 to change the lives of 4000 people through our Chicago Marathon event this year.

We would love to have you join us on this journey.  Donate to our team or look at our roster and donate through individuals on our team. We ARE the Church and others running together on behalf of our brothers and sisters. Leave an encouraging word...they mean the world to our runners when they are going through a rough patch. Our goal is to keep running until we solve the lack of access to clean water problem!

 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’              Matthew 25:40

Thank you for being part of the team!!!
