Donate $26.20 and receive a MudLove Bracelet to wear/support me on race day. AND, the first 26(.2) people to donate at least $26.20 will have a mile run in their honor on race day -- 26 slots remain.
The journey of 157.2 miles begins with a single step.
The 2019 Chicago Marathon completes my "Six Star" adventure and I am dedicating this race to my mom, Karen. As I began this journey to complete six world major races, my mom began her own journey: fighting breast cancer. My mom spent most of 2018 fighting breast cancer - as I ran Tokyo and Boston, she cheered for me as she started her treatment and continued to cheer for me as she went through radiation for Berlin and NYC. And now, I'm cheering (and running) for her as she's in remission.
Add to the next chapter of their story....
With my mom going through what she did in 2018, I wanted to make my last WMM race count. I was drawn to Imerman Angels because of their mission: partnering anyone, any age, any gender, anywhere and any cancer type seeking support with someone just like them – a “Mentor Angel”. A Mentor Angel is a cancer survivor or caregiver who most importantly has faced the same type of cancer. Imagine having a support system of someone who has been there, who can guide you to the finish line.
So... how can you help?
Just press that "donate now" button and give what you feel comfortable. Every dollar puts me one step closer to running for a great cause and will help me take my victory lap for my mom :)
