THE STORY:

On October 9th, I'm running the Chicago Marathon with Team Chicago Lights!  I am excited to challenge myself to run 26.2 miles while raising funds for an important cause. 

Through Chicago Lights at Fourth Presbyterian Church, I volunteer as a tutor for an incoming 10th grade boy.  Every Tuesday of the school year, we work on homework, laugh at his music video dance moves, and talk about his goal of going to college.  He lives in an underserved neighborhood on Chicago's west side and often shares stories about life in his community.  I admire his persistence and positive attitude despite the violence and hardships that are too common in his neighborhood.  The kids at Chicago Lights constantly inspire me, and I want to support them as much as possible.

For over 50 years, Chicago Lights has provided a safe and fun community where kids can spend time after school.  All donations submitted on this page will go to Chicago Lights and make a positive impact in Chicago.

I appreciate your support of Chicago Lights and your support of me and my race!  Please feel free to reach out for more information about the marathon and this organization.

Thank you!

Jennie
