BENEFITING: CHICAGO CHILDRENS CHARITIES
EVENT DATE: Oct 20, 2013
On 10/20, I'll be honoring Minor Morrow LeBlond and her courageous fight against Parkinson’s Disease by running in the National Parkinson's Foundation's Move Day. I will also be honoring her passion for children's charities by raising $$ for the Chicago Children's Charities through this run.
For more than 25 years, Chicago Children’s Charities has existed to raise money for the betterment of children in the Chicago area.
Every year, we contribute to “grassroots” organizations that are dedicated to serving local children. From running summer camps and after-school programs to teaching fine arts and poetry, each organization uniquely touches the lives of those they serve.
By focusing on such organizations, many of who are unknown outside of their communities, every dollar we contribute has a significant impact. In fact, some of our beneficiaries would be unable to operate without our going support.
Run entirely by volunteers, Chicago Children’s Charities donates 100% of monies raised to its beneficiaries.
