BECAUSE. OF. YOU!
Your support, encouragement, training and donations all encouraged me to go give this another go!
My goal this year: Beat my time by 5 minutes. Turn my 38.55 5K into a 33.55 5K. I've been training, but I need YOUR support again.
Please help me support this AWESOME team, I'd like to up my last year record by $100 dollars. With a $10 dollar donation (or more) I'll email you a picture of me at the finish line so you can hang it on your fridge, frame it and put it on your dresser... or burn it, I suppose.

Team Worker Justice Runners is back! This time, we'll be sprinting/inching (you choose!) our way to the 17th Annual Chicago Half Marathon finish line.
COME RUN WITH US!
Team Worker Justice Runners is a diverse and dynamic group of runners of all levels brought together by a shared commitment to protecting and advancing workers' rights. We're a mix of novice and pro-runners, athletes and slackers, big and small, young and old, fast and slow... You get the picture. So, wherever you fall in the spectrum of runners, YOU'RE WELCOME on our team!
Together, we will train and endure the physical and mental challenge of running 13.1 MILES (or 5K for some) because we believe that everyone has the right to earn a living wage and we will go the distance to fight for that right.
We will run because we know that every mile we cross brings us closer to raising $10,000 to support Interfaith Worker Justice's efforts to stop wage theft and protect the rights of the most vulnerable workers and their families.
Together, we will cross the finish line knowing we made a difference in the lives of working families.
