As a Team CAL runner, I pledge to raise a minimum of $1,750 to support the children and families served by Cal’s Angels (Cal's). Funds must be collected by me on or before November 11, 2021. There will be THREE fundraising re-commitment dates: 1) team members must achieve $600 of their fundraising commitment by May 31, 2021, in order to receive their bib code and Ambassador Apparel Kit. 2) Achieve 75% of their fundraising commitment by October 1, 2021. 3) 100% of your fundraising commitment is due on November 11, 2021. Cal's will charge the difference to the card on file if fundraising benchmarks are not achieved on the above-specified days. The inability to meet the stated fundraising re-commitment dates for any reason will lead to the loss of race entry. Entry cannot be deferred or canceled/reinstated for use by another participant.
Individuals are NOT guaranteed entry into the 2021 Chicago Marathon by completing and submitting the commitment & waiver form. Codes are LIMITED and are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Allocation of your unique code will only be given when the form and payment is received, and a minimum of $600 fundraising level has been achieved by May 31, 2021. Cal's Angels will cover the registration fee of $216.00.
