ABOUT TP4PCRF - BANK OF AMERICA CHICAGO MARATHON: OCTOBER 13, 2019
For 10 years, Team Palestine for the Palestine Children's Relief Fund (TP4PCRF) has participated as a force that runs the Bank of America Chicago Marathon to help raise funds for various projects and centers to help children in Palestine and the Middle East. TP4PCRF runs because #everymilesavesachild. This year, we are running to help establish a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) in Ramallah, Palestine. With the PICU, children will be able to receive the adequate care they will need in dire situations. Runners from all over the world join together in Chicago to create awareness and celebrate their fundraising accomplishments by running 26.2 miles.
The PCRF was established in 1991 to help address the medical and humanitarian crisis facing Palestinian youth in the Middle East and has become the largest provider of free, specialized surgical care to all children regardless of their race, religion or ethnic background. The PCRF has been awarded the top 4-star rating by Charity Navigator for fiscal management, while being able to treat more kids than any other charity in the Middle East and is 501(c)3 tax exempt.
