CHICAGO | De La Salle Institute announces that more than 140 of its students volunteered at the recent Bank of America Chicago Marathon.
Those young women and men who took part distributed Gatorade, water and bananas to the participants at stands set up near mile marker 23 at 34th Street and Michigan Avenue in Chicago. In addition, the De La Salle students also provided words of encouragement and good will to the runners.
“It was wonderful to see so many of our students contributing to such a worthy cause,” De La Salle athletic director Tom White said. “The fact that many runners thanked us for being out there made the day even more memorable.
“The Meteors always contribute when needed. I’m proud of our students and I’m grateful for the exemplary way in which they represented our school."
