Help a marathon newbie help a great cause!
So after running in high school and kicking around a few shorter distances during medical school (5Ks - half marathons), I went ahead and signed up for the 2013 Chicago Marathon! I'm raising funds for the Crossroads Runners Team from Old St. Patrick's Church here in the Windy City. Old St. Pat's has been my parish for the past 5 years and the Crossroads Runners Team is a group of folks from the parish who decided to get together and raise funds for some great causes.
Please consider donating to me on behalf of Team Crossroads. Crossroads raises funds for non-profits to assist Chicago’s at-risk youth, homeless and unemployed with targeted programs, resources and service initiatives. Organizations include Harmony Hope and Healing, Horizons for Youth, and Career Transitions Center.
The vision of Crossroads Runners is:
Old St. Patrick’s Church partners with more than 20 local organizations and provides programming that addresses issues of social concern here in Chicago, including poverty, homelessness, literacy, job placement and therapeutic services. The following programs are housed in our 703 Social Concerns Building, located on the Old St. Pat’s Campus. All of these programs wouldn’t be able to thrive without the additional support from the Crossroads Runners.
