My name is Joey Miller and I’m from Springfield, Illinois. The Chicago marathon will be my third marathon and my first attempt at fundraising. I improved by 17 minutes from my first to my second marathon and hope to continue to run even better in Chicago. Whenever, I visit Chicago, I always try to visit the zoo because it is always a great experience and when I was in college, the fact that it’s free was also appealing. The Lincoln Park Zoo in addition to providing a great home for over 1,100 animals, it supports and is directly involved with numerous extremely important conservation projects around Chicago and throughout the world. My favorite animals are Western and Eastern Lowland gorillas. Basically, I just want to raise as much money as I possibly can for Lincoln Park Zoo so it can remain free to the public and also so that it can continue to support the numerous important conservation and research projects worldwide for many years to come.
