THE STORY:

Thanks for stopping by my fundraising page. Since you are already here you probably already know me and what I am running for. But just in case you do not my name is Stephenie Lazarus and I work at an amazing organization called LIFT. On October 11th I am running the Chicago Marathon to help support the great work LIFT does each and every day. At LIFT we are working to lift families out of poverty for good. We pair volunteers, primarily college students, to work one on one with low income families to help them find jobs, housing and public benefits. Since starting at LIFT two years ago I have met some of the kindest and most inspiring people and I am so lucky that our lives have crossed paths. I am running this marathon for them and for everyone who just needs a little help when life gets rocky. Life is hard, but getting help shouldn't have to be To be honest, LIFT was really hoping to have its first ever team of runners at the 2015 Chicago Marathon, however, unfortunately there are so many great non-profits out there that the Chicago Marathon was unable to take on new charity teams this year. So I decided, well what the heck I'll just run the marathon myself. For those of you who know me you are probably not surprised by this decision making process. These next four months will be full of lots of early mornings, tired muscles, and weird tan-lines but I know it will all be worth it when I cross that finish line knowing that we were able to raise $2,000 for LIFT's families. Thank you for supporting LIFT's families on their path out of poverty and me on my journey to 26.2! -Stephenie
