  • Without the support of Palos Hospital and CNB Bank, it simply would not have been possible to hold the Southwest Half Marathon for the 9th consecutive year. With their help and the help of other sponsors and in-kind contributors, we will once again be able to host a true “runner’s race” and continue our tradition of supporting charity.
