BENEFITING: Girls on the Run - Chicago
ORGANIZER: Girls on the Run - Chicago
EVENT: GOTR Chicago Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
I am so excited to say that I just registered for the Chicago Marathon this October! Ever since I was little, I was unable to run without being in excruciating pain. In 8th grade, I had reconstructive surgery on both feet, leaving me in a wheelchair for eight months. I had to learn how to walk and run again through weeks of intensive therapy. Needless to say, I would not have imagined that I would be running one mile, let alone 26.2! Girls on the Run is close to my heart because it is my sorority's national philanthropy. I am running not only to challenge myself, but I am running for an amazing organization. Please consider donating, any contribution will help! Thank you so much for your time!
