The Illinois Spina Bifida Association works family by family to build a stronger, healthier, more resilient statewide community of people living with Spina Bifida, one of the most common, permanently-disabling birth defects in the U.S.

Special thanks go to the great group of runners joining us from the North American Spine Foundation.

  Marathon team fundraising helps support programs that:  

  •   *Introduce new and expecting parents to families with thriving children with SB;
  •   *Create local educational workshops with child care and Spanish interpretation;
  •   *Connect young ladies and their mothers with professional women with SB;
  •   *Open doors to an active lifestyle for children and young adults via adaptive sports partners; and
  •   *Award tens of thousands of dollars for college costs, camp scholarships, and more!

   We hope you can join us in making this a great team effort!
