Bank Of America Chicago Marathon Honors Jim Jenness With Richard M. Daley And Maggie Daley Award

The Bank of America Chicago Marathon has recognized veteran business leader Jim Jenness as the fourth annual recipient of the Richard M. Daley and Maggie Daley Award.

The award was established in 2010 to honor the Bank of America Chicago Marathon participant who raised the most funds for charity through the annual world-class event. As a member of the Mercy Home Heroes team, Jenness raised more than $81,000 for the local nonprofit, which provides children and families in need with critical programs and support.

At the 2013 Bank of America Chicago Marathon, the fundraising efforts of marathon runners contributed to a total of more than $15 million raised for the benefit of 140 charities. Since the Bank of America Chicago Marathon charity program was officially established in 2002, participants have raised more than $115 million for local, national and global causes.

“Jim Jenness and Mercy Home for Boys and Girls epitomize the true charitable spirit and community connections that are an integral part of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon,” said Tim Maloney, Illinois president, Bank of America. “It’s our honor to present this distinguished award to Jim for his outstanding efforts in supporting an organization that, like the marathon, contributes to making a difference throughout Chicago.”

Maloney joined Executive Race Director Carey Pinkowski and Lally Daley Hotchkiss last evening at a charity reception hosted by the Bank of America Chicago Marathon to present the award to Jenness, a co-trustee of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation Trust, and member of the boards of directors for Kellogg Company, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, DePaul University, Children’s Memorial Hospital and the Mercy Home for Boys and Girls.

“I offer my sincere congratulations to Jim Jenness," said Mayor Daley. "Jim’s support of Mercy Home demonstrates the commitment that thousands of runners make each year at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon -- and this commitment has become a critical source of fundraising that truly impacts our city."
