BENEFITING: Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers
ORGANIZER: Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers
Hello Friends & Family!
I’m proud to tell you that I’m running this year’s Chicago Marathon as part of the HEART Chicago marathon team. HEART is an amazing nonprofit that teaches students and teachers about humane education (teachhumane.org). What’s humane education, you ask? Humane education encourages students to think about their responsibility to one another, animals and the natural world. Through HEART’s programs, students in Chicago have organized beach cleanups, built community gardens and spoken out against gang violence.
I’m passionate about HEART because I’m a firm believer that one of the best ways to make a community a better place to live is to empower younger generations to make a difference. HEART Chicago provides students and teachers with invaluable resources and tools to make Chicago a more responsible and compassionate community. I continue to be blown away by the service and volunteer projects that HEART students create and lead for the Chicago Community.
I hope that you'll share this passion with me and join me in my fundraising efforts. Every mile I run and dollar I raise will help support HEART’s wonderful work.
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
