NYC MARATHON UPDATE:
I did it!!! I finished the NYC Marathon on Sunday November 2, 2014, with a time of 5:31:12. It was a tough race to run, but I loved every minute of it. Thanks to all who have supported the fundraiser and cheered me on along the way!!! You have been an amazingly inspirational support crew.

Hi! My name is Amy Wagner and I am a teacher at Leman Middle School (formerly known as the West Chicago Middle School) of School District #33 in West Chicago, IL.
On Sunday October 12, 2014, I made my dream come true of completing my second Chicago marathon and setting a personal record. Afterwards I decided that the next time I ran a marathon it would be for a cause and with a purpose much bigger than myself.
On Sunday November 2, 2014, I will be running in the New York City Marathon!!! This time I will run to raise money to buy uniforms for the athletes of Leman Middle School.
Most of our school's athletic teams do not have proper uniforms. I love running and I love sports. And I know that not having the proper equipment and/or uniforms greatly impacts performance and self confidence. I want our athletes to look as good and feel as good as every other school that we compete against. If the athletes of LMS are willing to represent our school in competition they deserve to do so with the proper equipment. Please help me make this possible for them.
I have already paid for all of my race entrance fees, training, equipment, and travel expenses. Every penny that is donated will go towards putting a shirt on an LMS athlete's back.
Thank you for supporting the athletes of Leman Middle School. Go Chargers!!!
