My name is Alma! I’m 24 years old and running the Chicago Marathon has always been something I wanted to accomplish. I’ve never ran a full marathon, but nothing is impossible ESPECIALLY when you are driven by such a great organization like La Casa Norte. I didn’t plan on running this year, but when the opportunity presents itself, you have to take it! Running the marathon is great, but raising $1000 for homeless youth & families around the city would be amazing! La Casa Norte provides food, clothes, shelter, and so much more to help families in need. There are so many kids who want to make a difference in the world and they SHOULD have that opportunity. So donate what you can, every dollar counts, every dollar is appreciated.
