Yes, indeed it is my 6th consecutive Bank of America Chicago Marathon in support of the Center for Advancing Domestic Peace - http://www.advancingdomesticpeace.org/ - and this amazing group of 9 agencies working to Run Domestic Violence Out of Town. The Center's mission is "to end domestic violence at its source" by helping individuals who choose to use violence in their intimate relationships change their beliefs and behaviors so that they and their families can live in home free from abuse and violence.
My goal for 2016, my 66th year, is to raise $3066! Each donation, no matter how small, makes a difference in the lives of women, children and men impacted by domestic violence. Your support is especially crucial give the budget crisis in Illinois that has reduced the ability of our agencies to serve those in need.
So I am seeking the support of my family, friends, colleagues and perhaps a few strangers moved by my efforts and those of the other runners to Run Domestic Violence Out of Town - http://rundvoutoftown.org/.
I sincerely appreciate your support - whether its the first time or the 6th time. THANK YOU!
The Run DV Coalition is an unprecedented collaboration representing diverse populations across Chicago. Our domestic violence agencies are located in neighborhoods throughout the city and suburbs, and serve communities representing all races, ethnicities, and religions.
