The Mercy Mile Cheer Zone
October 9 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Mercy Home will host a free marathon cheer zone on race day, October 9th, as runners pass our West Loop location at mile 17 (aka “The Mercy Mile”). Our cheer zone will feature carnival games, music, free food and coffee, a climbing wall, bounce house and children’s activities, and more, plus a prime viewing spot for spectators looking to cheer on their favorite runners.
Among those who will pass our Home will be 260 “Mercy Home Heroes,” runners who are raising support that will help us provide young people with safety, healing, and tools to build brighter futures.
