BENEFITING: A SAFE HAVEN FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2013
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.
Neli, an avid runner and triathlete, has hosted the A Safe Haven Foundation's 5K Run! To End Homelessness three years in a row, with all proceeds benefiting the homeless in the Chicagoland area. The 4th Annual A Safe Haven Foundation 5K Run! To End Homelessness will be held Sunday, June 29, 2014.
"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. The 2013 Bank of America Chicago Marathon will start and finish in Grant Park beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, October 13.
