THE STORY:

I ran the Chicago Marathon 9 years ago and decided once was enough!  Then I met some wonderful people and athletes from Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association - GLASA - and decided that I could run the Chicago Marathon one more time to raise money for their programs.

GLASA is a local Chicagoland non-profit organization that provides programs and services for people of all ages that have physical and visual disabilities.  I attended one of their track practices this summer and was impressed by the athletes determination and coaches support.  To learn more about the organization and the athletes they support, please go to www.glasa.org and view the photos on this page.

Throughout my life, I have been lucky enough to participate in many different sports.  I may not be a stellar athlete, but I have stayed active, learned teamwork and gained confidence in my abilities and life.  And this is what GLASA provides for its athletes.

So, this October 13th, I will be running 26.2 miles in the Chicago Marathon.  Please consider donating $10, $1 per mile or whatever you can afford to support TEAM GLASA and their athletes.

Thank you for your support and as GLASA's motto states, "Let no one sit on the sidelines!"

Amy

PS:  Donations of bottles of Aleve or Ibuprophin will also be accepted.  My body is definitely telling me that I am 9 years older than the last time I ran the marathon!
