I am thrilled to run in my first half marathon and do it for a great cause! I am running to support the South Suburban Family Shelter in Homewood, IL along with the other participating domestic violence providers across the city of Chicago.
Money raised by the Run DV Out of Town team will go towards prevention programming and supportive services for DV survivors. Help me reach my fundraising goal of $500! As a thank you for your donation, I will add your name to my t-shirt on race day so that I may stay encouraged with your support.
I truly appreciate your support!
