EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
Hi Everyone! I'm planning on running this year's Chicago Marathon. This will be the first full marathon I've ever run. I've heard so many great things about the race. And Chicago has always been a favorite city of mine to visit. I'm incredibly excited about this opportunity and look forward to being rewarded by the journey of training and completing the race.
To make this even better, I've decided to run to raise money for Girls on the Run, which is a charity that seeks to empower young girls by using a curriculum that integrates running. When I read about it, I found myself really appreciating the organization for its mission and core values. They have programs in just about every state, including one in Austin. My hope is that Mena will get to participate in their programs one day.
Please consider donating to my campaign. No amount is too small. And you'll be contributing to a quality organization.
