I'm excited to run the Chicago Marathon this year to support Chicago HOPES for Kids' educational programs for children living in Chicago's homeless shelters! I'm running alongside my lifelong friend Tonya, who is a Board member of this great organization. Over 20,000 Chicago Public School students identify as homeless. Chicago HOPES for Kids works in homeless shelters across the city, matching students with tutors for targeted reading and homework support. Thank you for your support during marathon training and the race! Together we can empower lives through education.
