Welcome to my fundraising home page!
I am excited to announce that this fall, I will be running my FIRST marathon. On October 12th, I will take on the 26.2 miles of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon! I am proud to be running for Chicago HOPES for Kids, a great organization that supports homeless students throughout the city with tutoring and other after school activities. Chicago HOPES works in four shelters across Chicago, providing homework help and math and literacy reinforcement to K-8 students. To learn even more about Chicago HOPES for kids you can visit the website at http://www.chicagohopes.org.
As part of my efforts, I've committed to fundraising for this wonderful program with a goal of raising $1,250. Fifty doallars funds one semester of tutoring for a student, but any and all donations will make a difference in the lives of these kids.
As I launch this page, I have just finished my third week of marathon training with the Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA). I am happy to report that it is going very well, and I am feeling strong and healthy so far.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my page, and I hope you will consider donating to my cause, Chicago HOPES for Kids. Together we can make these 26.2 miles count!
