GO TEAM OUR LADY OF THE ANGELS!
We have 38 fantastic individuals running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon to support Mission of Our Lady of the Angels on the west side of Chicago!
The Mission serves 700+ families a month with food and other basic material needs, assists 900+ at risk kids in after-school programs, and, most importantly, brings the Hope of Christ to a neighborhood plagued by gangs, violence and poverty. The Mission is located at the site of the tragic 1958 school fire.
Each member of Team OLA has committed to train (running over 400 miles) over the long, hot summer and run 26.2 miles on Marathon Sunday . . .along with fundraising to help support the Mission.We are counting on your prayer and financial support to reach the finish line and our financial goals!
There are 2 main ways you can support the Mission:
1) Please pray for Team OLA and the work at the Mission
2) Please consider donating to support Team OLA! The Mission is able to provide all of its services to its neighbors for free because of many generous donations from people like yourself. After just completing a gigantic capital campaign last year, the Mission is working on better establishing its programming in the neighborhood, and needs your help to do that. We hope to raise $40,000 this year! We need your help to reach that goal!
