by Members of the Cornerstone Community Outreach shelter program
As of 2005, CCO (Cornerstone Community Outreach) has officially launched our charity athletics Team CCO. The LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon has accepted CCO as an official LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon charity. Currently, we are in the beginning stages of doing two things:
 Finding the runners, nationwide, who have the calling and the guts to come to Chicago on October 9, 2005, and run The LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon. If you're a runner, what better motivation than running for yourself and for others? We ask that you register through our charity rather than registering online via The LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon site; this capability will be enabled very soon. Until then, you can email teamcco @ jpusa.org with questions or wanting to sign up.
 Finding the sponsors, nationwide, who want to support both the athletes and the cause of aiding homeless women, children, and families. Get involved by sponsoring a runner of your choice as she/he runs toward the goal of ending the cycle of poverty and homelessness.
More details will soon be added here as well as the soon to be posted TeamCCO website. If you are interested in either running or being a sponsor, or in volunteering in another capacity, please email (after removing the bracketed portion):
