The Detroit Free Press/Chemical Bank Marathon supports local charitable organizations centered on health and wellness. In 2016, 40 charities raised more than $1.7 million towards those causes, and enriched the lives of thousands of runners who chose to run for a reason.

We are currently recruiting participating charities for 2017. Please contact Deb Scola at with any questions or interest. View our 2017 Charity Partner Outline for more information.
