Thank you very much for visiting my fundraising page for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. I have decided to raise money for Run Domestic Violence Out of Town which comprises eleven very different domestic violence service providers from across Chicago. 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. 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.
Some background on myself...I started seriously running two years ago after completing my first half marathon at the Indianapolis Mini Marathon. After that, I was hooked and have completed 10 half marathons to date varying from the grounds of the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC back to the Lakefront Path in Chicago, IL. Running has truly changed my life for the better and I now hope to change the lives of many others by running for Run DV Out of Town. Your assistance in accomplishing this is truly appreciated. As I complete the marathon in October, know that every single step I take is thanks to you and is truly a culmination of all of our efforts.
Running helped change my life, now I ask for your assistance so that we can use running to change the lives of others.
The coalition members of Run Domestic Violence Out of Town are: Arab American Family Services (AAFS), Center for Advancing Domestic Peace, Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women's Network (CMBWN), Connections for Abused Women and their Children(CAWC), Domestic Violence Legal Clinic, Family Rescue, Healthcare Alternative Systems, Metropolitan Family Services, SHALVA, South Suburban Family Shelter (SSFS) and (WINGS) Women in Need Growing Stronger.
