BENEFITING: American Red Cross
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2013
As many of you may know, it has been a goal of mine to run a marathon for a very long time! 2013 is my year!! After the Boston Marathon bombing, I was a little unsure of whether I still wanted to do it because I didn't feel safe anymore. However, I realized that I NEED to run it not only for myself but also for the people who cant anymore. Not only is my goal to run The 2013 Bank of America Chicago Marathon, but it is also my goal to raise $1200.00 for the American Red Cross! Please make a donation through my page today!! Thank you so much for your support!
