ORGANIZER: Opportunity Enterprises, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2013
Hi all. I am running in the Chicago Marathon again this year, but this time have chosen to enter as a charity participant. I am pleased to be running for Opportunity Enterprises, an organization working "to maximize the self-sufficiency and enrich the quality of life for individuals with disabilities" in the Northwest Indiana community.
I have been familiar with Opportunity Enterprises since the days when I worked for MDA of Northern Indiana. They provided transportation for our clients to doctor and MDA Clinic appointments as well as hosting a support group for parents and caregivers - these same types of services in addition to many others including Adult Day Care, are available to those with special needs/disabilities in communities in NW Indiana.
In my experience, the services they offer are a lifeline for the families utilizing them. I hope you wll take the time to peruse their website, www.oppent.org - there you can find the nitty gritty facts about their organization and the stories of those they've helped, the stories of how their lives have been enriched and how the funds the organization receives are used to benefit those in need.
I hope you will join me in supporting Opportunity Enterprises by making a contribution today. You can do so through this secure website (just click on the big red Donate button to the right!) and any & every amount helps. I have set a very reasonable goal of raising $500, I hope you will help me to meet, maybe even exceed, it.
Thanks again! Wishing you all health and happiness.m
