Did you know that 14.7 % of Chicago’s high school dropouts were incarcerated, and nearly 42,000 teens do not have a regular high school diploma? This shocking statistic motivated me to do my part to make a difference.
I am forming a team to race in the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle to support my A Run For Our Future Campaign. My goal is to build a team of 500 runners that will each raise $200 in support of the cause. Donations will benefit Bears Care on behalf of the Matt Forte Foundation to support educational scholarships for Chicago teens striving to achieve their dream of a higher education. As a proud graduate of Tulane University, I understand the power of education to change lives for the better. Together, we will build relationships and programs that will help to eliminate those statistics.
Help me Run For Our Future to improve the lives of Chicago’s youth!
Join my team and encourage your friends, family members and co-workers to help us make a difference in our community. We can do this together - as a team!
