Our mission at RAM Racing is not only to raise funds to support our official charities but also to promote, raise awareness and support the mission of the organization.

Ronald McDonald House Charities


We're proud to have two official charities of the Run Mag Mile Half & 5k! American Cancer Society is the official charity of the half marathon, and The Chicago Help Initiative is the official charity of the 5k.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service. For over 100 years, the ACS has worked relentlessly to save lives and create a world with less cancer. Together with millions of our supporters worldwide, we help people stay well and get well, find cures, and fight back against cancer. For more information, please visit

The Chicago Help Initiative is putting a stop to hunger by providing meals to the homeless, underprivileged and today's jobless citizens of the near North Side of Chicago. In addition, they are dedicated to connecting them to the resources and social services they need in order to thrive under difficult circumstances. Each week the volunteers, generous benefactors, sponsors and presenters give their time in an effort to help those who are less fortunate. Poverty is a major problem in Chicago and you can join them today by volunteering to be a part of the solution by helping today for a better tomorrow. Visit to find out how you can help.
