BENEFITING: RESTORATION MINISTRIES INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2013
Join our Chicago Marathon team and make your run more meaningful by raising funds that will give at-risk kids a brighter future. Restoration Ministries is located in Harvey, IL, a south suburb of Chicago plagued with common inner-city problems including high crime rate, violence, gangs and poverty. Through after-school and summer programs we provide underprivileged children and teens opportunities to achieve academic success, identify their talents, and grow spiritually. Our programs include Homework Help & Tutoring, Chess Club, the Harvey Boxing Club, the Gallery of the Arts, our visual and performing arts education center, Summer Day Camp, Youth Group, Bread for the Head Reading Program, and Bibles & Basketball. In addition to our youth programs, we operate two free Christian-based residential programs for recovering addicts, a food pantry and assistance programs. To support our runners and our efforts, you can make a credit card donation on this website or mail a check made payable to Restoration Ministries to 253 E. 159th Street, Harvey, IL 60426.
