THE STORY:

Five - Five - Sixty Five!

So what, you may be asking, does Five - Five - Sixty Five! have to do with my Run DV Out of Town effort. Well, let me clue you in.  I have completed Five consecutive Bank of American Marathons for this effort. And I have committeed to run Five more! This all began the year I turned 60 years old, so this year I'll mark Sixty Five years.  As a result, I have chosen to honor my past Five marathons, to promote the Five yet to come, and to wonder why at Sixty Five I'm still crazy enough to run another 26.2 miles on October 11, 2015 by raising $5565. My efforts are in particular supporting http://advancingdomesticpeace.org/ the agency I helped co-found.

I am personally pledging $556 to this effort.

I am reaching out to encourage you to support my efforts by making a donation to my efforts.  It can be any amount though be creative in using the numbers Five - Five - Sixty Five when you donate. Please leave a comment on why you are supporting my efforts for this cause.

Read more about the agencies involved.

Eleven very different domestic violence service providers from across the city have come together to advance their cause via the October 2015 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. All revenue generated by the Run DV Out of Town team, will be used by its member agencies for domestic violence prevention and supportive services for its survivors.

This year's effort will be my 6th of 10 consecutive Chicago Marathon. As in the past, I am running in support of The Center for Advancing Domestic Peace http://advancingdomesticpeace.org/ and our Run DV Out of Town team effort. In the first year, I ran as the only runner. This year we have 50 runners on our team!

The Coalition is an unprecedented collaboration representing diverse populations across Chicago. Its member agencies are located in neighborhoods throughout the city and suburbs and serve communities representing all races, ethnicities, and religions. As Coalition member Ava Newbart, Director of Development at Shalva, states, “domestic violence doesn’t discriminate: it’s an equal-opportunity destroyer of families throughout Chicago. It doesn’t matter if you’re Hispanic, Asian, Jewish, or Arabic, or whether you are rich or poor. We embrace our diversity and stand together because nobody should be afraid in their own home. Domestic violence is NOT OK.”
