Friends, Family and Colleagues
I am excited to be running the Chicago Marathon this year as a team member of the Chicago Metropolitan Battered Womens Network. As many of you know I have run 11 Boston Marathon's to raise money for a wonderful cause. I was asked by a colleague of mine to join this amazing team this year. Please help me meet my fundraising goal of $1,500 for this wonderful cause. A bit more about this great organization:
We are 10 very different domestic violence service providers from across the city of Chicago, who have come together to advance our cause in ending domestic violence. We recruit a team of dedicated runners to help us raise both money & awareness. All revenue generated by the Run DV Team is used by our member agencies for domestic violence prevention and supportive services for its survivors and their families.
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.
The Coalition Members of Run Domestic Violence Out of Town:
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)
Healthcare Alternative Systems
Metropolitan Family Services
South Suburban Family Shelter (SSFS)
(WINGS) Women in Need Growing Stronger
We have an awesome team of runners in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and the Chicago Half Marathon/5K!
