Our Mission

My Hero Not for Profit has a simple philosophy: To financially support the social programs of Chicago-area hospitals.

Our history

The My Hero organization started in 2017 as a small 5K fundraiser. Our initial race was a huge success, raising $10,000 for the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Childrens hospital of Chicago Family Life Center. Following this, we became a not-for-profit organization so that we could host multiple fund raisers each year. Our goal is to raise money for important social programs Chicago-area hospitals, including extended stays for families and volunteer programs.

Our operations

My Hero NFP is composed of a board of directors who volunteer their time in order to produce various fund-raising events. No salaries are drawn, and 100 percent of funds raised are used to support social programs at chicago-area hospitals or are directly invested into our endowment.
