BENEFITING: CHICAGO RUN
ORGANIZER: CHICAGO RUN
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017
Chicago Run’s mission is to promote the health and wellness of Chicago children by offering free running and fitness programs to increase physical activity, promote cross-community collaboration, and enhance academic performance and self-esteem in Chicago youth. Their efforts are important and necessary as drastic budget cuts to sports and health programs are significantly contributing to an already noticeable gap in fitness and leadership opportunities for youth in low-income communities.
This cause unites two of my passions: running and youth development. I am honored to be running for such a worthwhile cause/
Thank you for making a difference in these youth's lives. Because of you and others like you, Chicago Run is able to continue to be a beacon of hope – inspiring Chicago youth to tackle physical challenges and self-improvement, so that they can strive for better futures.
