Hi Friends! I am running the 2015 Chicago Hot Chocolate 15K to raise funds for Anixter Center, one of the largest nonprofit organizations in the Chicago area serving people of all ages with disabilities and related challenges. Each year Anixter Center and its three divisions—CALOR, Chicago Hearing Society (CHS) and Lekotek—help thousands of children, teens and adults by providing residential, educational, employment, socialization and health services. Some of you know that this organization is particularly special for me because my son William used to receive toy lending services from the Lekotek division. Your generous donation will fund life-changing programs such as a literacy program for adults with disabilities; 24-hour supervised residential homes; substance use disorder programs for those who are deaf; and employment programs to help people with disabilities find jobs. Please join me in supporting this fantastic organization that provides critical services for those in need!!
