Join us on an epic journey! 

Parkview Community Church is running with Team World Vision to help provide life-changing clean water to children and communities in Africa. This will be our fifth time training for the Chicago Marathon in the name of clean water and fullness of life! 

Many of us are not “runners”, but we support one another as we pursue this goal and play an active role in ending the global water crisis. We’ve seen communities transformed spiritually, educationally, and economically when water springs up where it was not before – we can’t wait to see God do this again, even if for people we may never meet. 

Team World Vision provides everything you need to cross the finish line: training plans, weekly email encouragement, fundraising guides and incentives, and an incredible race weekend experience. We also have a team of Captains from Parkview devoted to ensuring EVERYONE makes it to race day. No one will do this alone. 

Between twice weekly Group Runs and lots of fun events between now and race day, you'll be surprised just how fun running can be. 

In Africa, there is a saying: "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."Join us and let's go farther together! 

Want to chat further? Email Shari, the Team Captain, at [email protected] or call/text 630.880.7901. We'd love to tell you more about what our season looks like!
