THE STORY:

This weekend, I get to combine a few of my favorite things: setting goals, fitness, and supporting my favorite cause!

That's right...This Sunday, October 13th, I'll be running the Chicago Marathon to raise funds for A Safe Haven! Please donate whatever you can…whether it be $26.20 or $262.00, or anything in between! Your donation will inspire me every mile of the way, and will also help those in crisis to inspire, transform, and sustain their lives!

Neli Vazquez Rowland, Co-founder and President of A Safe Haven Foundation, will run the 26.2 mile Chicago Marathon on behalf of the foundation this weekend, Sunday, October 13.

"My vision and the mission of A Safe Haven Foundation is to end homelessness, and participating in the Chicago Marathon is just another step I am taking toward that goal." says Vazquez Rowland.

In its 36th year and a member of the World Marathon Majors, the Bank of America Chicago Marathon annually attracts 45,000 participants, including a world-class elite runner and wheelchair athlete field, and an estimated 1.7 million spectators.

Good Luck. What makes A Safe Haven special you don't judge mans character on his bank account, his past issues, or their statues in this world. Instead most staff workers, an residence are judge upon their engine. Like an car the interior might be messed up, outside of car looks broken, breaks steering are off. Tell me what engine looks like. Just like in an person. Judge character on someone's heart, their engine.Rest is bullshit. A Safe Haven place were second chances occur.To me that's beautiful. Seen broken man who I said no way this cat won't make it. Guy had one shirt on his back, had negative attitude, was still addicted to herein, 8 weeks later attitude change, became in touch with reality, an went out found job. Was completely different from man who walk in with pure rage now at end of 8 weeks was an role model for youngster who came in, spoke at AA meetings. Now that's an miracle. A Safe Haven provided that. 4 years ago
