Ron and I are once again running the Chicago Marathon and raising money to benefit Opportunity Enterprises. We feel honored to be able to participate in the sport we love and be able to raise money for such a great organization. We are thankful each morning that we are able to lace up our shoes and pound the pavement when so many others are not as fortunate. It makes it easier to get through those tough final miles of the marathon knowing how much easier that challenge is for us than the everyday challenges of the clients of Opportunity Enterprises.
