BENEFITING: CHICAGO PARKS FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: CHICAGO PARKS FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
I am Andrew
This is fundraiser for the Chicago Parks Foundation.
I, Andrew, will be running the 2016 Chicago Marathon with the goal time of 2:59.
You will be donating (hopefully) to help support the Chicago parks foundation. A great organization that helps make the Chicago Parks some of the best in the world.
I'm pretty sure that Chicago minus parks would just be an inhospitible cold prarie that has been somehow made less condusive to life (as we know to exist) by urban sprawl.
The Chicago Parks Foundation works to ensure Chicago's parkland stays parkland. They work to make sure the Parkland is well kept and gorgeous.
If you've lived in Chicago you know what I mean. If you've visited Chicago within the last 95 years at some point you probably made a point to visit at least one of Chicago's parks. It was probably Grant Park. It was probably to see Buckingham Fountain. It also might not have been. I'm not clarvoyent.
What I am is a fundraiser and a runraiser. I will be raising 26.2 miles and $1000 for this foundation.
If you can contribute that would be amazing. I don't like to ask for money, but let's be honest that's exactly what fundraising is.
If you are one of my top 4 contributers and ask for a T-shirt I will get you a T-shirt that is all decked out with Chicago Parks Foundation logos and stuff.
If you donate more than $10 I will hand-draw with crayons the Bank of America logo and a Tree. I will then give you this piece of paper and wax.
If all my facebook friends donate $2 this fundraiser will be over when ever 500 of you donate.
At any rate all the best. Go do good things. Hopefully one of them is donate to this fundraiser as I deem it good, but I understand that there are much more significant things out there effecting you than this fundraiser, but hey, this is pretty cool too.
Thank you in advance,
