THE STORY:

As many of you all know I picked up a new hobby last year, running.  So this year, I decided to get my Forrest Gump on and run the Chicago Marathon.  I tried to enter through the lottery, however the powers that be hated on me (I think they didn't want me to beat the Kenyans!) and my number wasn't pulled.  But, this will not deter me.  I have entered the marathon via charity.  

Different charities were catching my eye, but this one charity- run domestic violence out of town- pulled at my heart.  Be it for the way domestic violence has been covered in the media as of late, or the very personal reason in my life, I felt the need to raise money for these organization to help raise awareness and support for the survivors of domestic violence.   

So whatever you can give, spare, hand out (or any other word that would describe to support) I would greatly appreciate it.  

There is a lot of pain when training for a marathon, but I know that pain is small compared to those who have experienced domestic violence.  I run for them, and I hope you will support me in that cause.

Thank You

Steve 


CHICAGO METROPOLITAN BATTERED WOMENS NETWORK wrote -

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.

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 African- American, White, 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.”
