BENEFITING: Cornerstone Community Outreach
ORGANIZER: Cornerstone Community Outreach
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2013
One of my lifelong goals has been to run the Chicago Marathon; and this year, I plan on accomplishing that goal. To make running 26.2 miles even more rewarding, I am running to raise money for Team CCO, and all funds raised go to helping Cornerstone Community Outreach on Chicago's north side. CCO provides counciling and assistance in searching for employment, to ensure that becoming homeless is a temporary stepback, rather than a permanent lifestyle. It is also one of the only shelters in the area that don't have age/gender restrictions, allowing families seeking assistance to remain intact, rather than divided.
Please join me by donating to this cause, and cheer me on during race day, October 13th. Even the smallest donation goes a long way supporting a family who has nothing.
