February 3, 2010 — Non-Profit Chiropractic Organization (NPCO) is looking for runners to participate in the Chicago Half Marathon Sept. 12 or the Chicago Marathon Oct. 10.
The task of running 13.1 or 26.2 miles may seem daunting but more than 85 percent of the 2009 team was first-time runners. Runners ranged from doctors to students to patients from across the country all running with a common goal to promote the chiropractic profession by “Running for a Healthier Tomorrow.”
Registration began Feb. 1 and spots are limited. NPCO has special programs in place for doctors that are interested in running either the Chicago Half Marathon or the Chicago Marathon with their patients.
All runners receive an official Team NPCO jersey, personalized fundraising Web site, weekly support, training program, and much more. Runners are encouraged to sign up with friends and family members representing their office, school, club, church or other organization under Team NPCO!
NPCO is looking to exceed its 82-member team in 2009 and reach their team goal of $100,000. All money raised will go toward opening up non-profit clinics in third world countries and educating local communities about the benefits of chiropractic.
