BENEFITING: FAMILY SHELTER SERVICE INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2014
I will be running 26.2 miles in Chicago on October 12, 2014. This will be my second marathon, and this time around I will be running to support my friend's domestic violence shelter. The shelter provides counseling, intermediate housing, legal support, and many other services to victims of domestic violence in the Greater Chicago area. Family Shelter Service has served as a vital resource for the community for nearly forty years. Its network of employees and volunteers are made of much stronger stuff than myself, and their dedication to this cause is truly inspiring.
Your donation will help the shelter to continue on its mission of expanding support services to partners, children, and even pets that have been victimized by domestic violence. Every donation helps!

Thanks for your support!
