THE STORY:

Hello Family & Friends,

Yes, this is correct, it is not a typo! I am planning to run the 2016 Chicago Marathon-something I thought I would never do. Here's how I got to this point.

Most of you know I have a Therapy Dog, and we volunteer in Chicago by providing animal assisted therapy as part of a patients' recovery or treatment . As part of this volunteer work, I see people at their best, and sometimes their worst, often working to rebuild their lives.  They are in need of things that we take for granted, such as a roof over our head, or a healthy body. This is the type of thing that inspired me to sign up to run the Chicago Marathon-I am fundraising for the people who are in need of shelter, food, emotional support and other necessities to those affected by unforseen circumstances.

Every eight seconds the American Red Cross responds to a disaster. Each day, thousands of people provide compassionate care to those in need. Our network of generous donors, volunteers and employees share a mission of preventing and relieving suffering, here at home.You can help impact the lives of those in need!

By supporting me with team Red Cross you allow the American Red Cross to provide relief to those who have just lost everything.
