I'm planning to run the Chicago Marathon this fall and here's a great way to support me by helping raise money for a great charity.
As a parent, helping kids in need with simple things like a clean, safe place to live is something that I really belive in and I really hope you can donate even just a little.
Here is a quote from the web site which gives a better idea of the specifics of what they do:
"The Ali Forney Center (AFC) was started in June of 2002 in response to the lack of safe shelter for LGBTQ youth in New York City. We are committed to providing these young people with safe, dignified, nurturing environments where their needs can be met, and where they can begin to put their lives back together."
