BENEFITING: Old St Patricks Church
ORGANIZER: Old St Patricks Church
Crossroads Runners 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.
In January 2012, I was not a runner! However, the Chicago Marathon fell on my mom's birthday last year, and Old St. Pat's Crossroads Runners offered first rate coaching and the opportunity to help out some incredibly worthwhile organizations - so I said Yes!
I still don't think of myself as a runner, and yet, here I am asking you to sponsor me as I plan to complete my second Chicago Marathon on October 13th! Please give it some consideration, as the organizations which benefit from the Crossroads Runners really are helping myriads of at-risk youth, homeless women and children, and those who are unemployed in this economy.
And, please, say a prayer for cool, dry weather on the 13th!
