Kesem is excited to partner with Bank of America Chicago Marathon again in 2024.

A Kesem name is a nickname campers choose in order to hold a fun identity at camp and create distance from the stress of coping with a parent's cancer. If you don't have a Kesem name already, feel free to choose one or leave it blank and give it more thought later! - Cheddar
