Take 2 vans, 12 people, and 197 miles and what do you get? Ragnar Chicago 2015! Ragnar Chicago is one of the more unique events you're going to find out there. 2 vans filled with family and friends alike, running from Madison, WI to Chicago, IL.
It's a big event and big events allow you the opportunity to bring attention to great causes. In our case, that cause would be an organization that, we believe, is one of Fort Wayne and northern Indiana's best kept secrets.
Kate's Kart provides "new books as a comforting diversion to hospitalized children and their families, and to foster a love of books, and ultimately literacy, by encouraging children to read and parents to read to their children." They are in over 15 hospitals in northern Indiana and are approaching their 100,000th books given to a child this spring.
Giving a child the gift of a book instantly brightens a child's day, especially those going through a hard time. It is a simple, yet profound act of caring but quickly impactful.
It's that care that they bring to all of those kids that makes it easy to get behind them and we hope that you will get behind us as we run those 200 miles for Kate's Kart.
