BENEFITING: CHICAGO HOUSE AND SOCIAL SERVICE AGENCY
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2011
Hello, This is my very first Chicago Marathon, well my very first marathon ever, I just happen to be running it in Chicago :o)
Last year I watched my sister (Joannie) run her first marathon (in Chicago too), and it was SO inspiring to be there for her, cheer her on, and watch her cross the finishline. AMAZING! As soon as it was over I asked her if she was running next year, because I want to run it with her. she said HELL NO! while she gasped for air.....hahaha but I guess after 26.2 miles you'd probably feel that way too.
So here we are 2011 and 6 months out, Joannie and I will be running together! I will be running on behalf of www.AegisFoundationInc.org and raising money for the www.ChicagoHouse.org with my life long friend Colin (this will be his 8th marathon).
I am here to ask you for your support, and believe me it can be anything from $5 to $1000 (if your feeling that generous). Every dollar will help and will make me run that much harder. I am very excited to do this, and if your in the area that day, it would be great to hear you cheer me on, trust me, I'll need it!!!
Thank you, William
