How does an exclusive party on Wrigley Field or waking up on the beach of Waikiki sound?  
You can do this AND help support vital programs for those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS by joining TEAM TO END AIDS (T2), the endurance training program of the AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC).

I invite you to one of T2's summer training programs and have an experience of a lifetime while improving and saving lives:

Honolulu Marathon
Grass skirts, flower leis, beautiful sunsets, and warm ocean breezes. Where else would you rather be this December than in the Islands of Aloha?  T2 has training programs for both beginners and experienced runners, so it doesn't matter if you haven’t run a step in years, everyone is welcome. With T2 you’ll experience the "aloha spirit" every step of the way. So you can just focus on having an unforgettable marathon experience, we even help with your travel arrangements with Travel Options by T2.

Wrigley Field Road Tour
Whether you’re a Cubs fan or cycling enthusiast the Wrigley Field Road Tour is a thrilling event for cyclists of all ability levels.  And after you complete the 100 mile ride you are treated to an exclusive party on Wrigley Field!  This out and back ride begins and ends at the Friendly Confines.  It’s so friendly they open the club house showers for riders to clean up before hitting the party on the field.

We’ve Got Your Back!
Training for the Honolulu Marathon and Wrigley Field Road Tour begins on June 16.  With T2's training programs, you will train with people at your level with experienced coaches and staff to help you along the way. As you train; you raise funds for the vital services provided by AFC.  You will not only be doing something for yourself, but you will be giving less fortunate people who are affected by HIV/AIDS a better quality of life in the process.
