BENEFITING: Old St Patricks Church
ORGANIZER: Old St Patricks Church
Dear Friends and Family,
It's nearing that time of year again. We are fast approaching that (hopefully) crisp October day when I will lace up my shoes and run 26.2 miles to benefit the social outreach mission of Old St. Pat's. This will be my third consecutive Chicago Marathon, and also my third running for Old St. Pat's. Training for and running a marathon is an incredible, humbling, and uplifiting experience. I can honestly say that running in support of such an outstanding organization and worthy cause makes every mile worth it.
Many of you have been beyond generous in your support over the past two years. I would ask that you consider a donation in any amount this year. It is cliche, and you know how much I hate cliches, but truly every dollar counts, and every penny makes a difference.
I may be the one putting one foot in front of the other on October 13th, but we are all running together in this marathon called life. Please help to make the journey just a little bit easier for those who are struggling. Your donation will help provide resources and services for at-risk youth, the homeless, and the unemployed.
Much love and my sincerest gratitude,
