My name is Jodi Heller and just like many I’ve been through a lot in my life and have been blessed. Fortunate to benefit from the help and support of others during my youth. Now, as an adult I’d like to give back and help those in need.
August 2013 will be my 40th birthday. Instead of a party, I’ll be doing my part to fight hunger by swimming across Gages Lake for charity.
Please support this worthy cause by making a donation to Northern Illinois Food Bank
We'd also like to invite you to join us as we watch the crossing and cheer for a great cause. I’ll be swimming across Gages Lake in Grayslake. I’ll be leaving from the condos on Prospect Drive, on the Northwest side of the lake and swimming across to Willow Point Beach on the Southeast side.
When: Saturday, August 17th at 9:00AM
Where: Willow Point Beach
Please bring the whole family. We'll have the grill going and selling hotdogs and brats, a bag of chips and a bottle of water for $5.00.
We ask you to also bring nonperisable food items. We'll collect donations at the beach and take all donations to the food bank.
We hope to see you at the finish line!
