BENEFITING: CHICAGO RUN
ORGANIZER: CHICAGO RUN
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017
I am proud to run in support of Chicago Run in the 2017 Chicago Marathon. I've had the chance to see Chicago Run grow and impact our inner city kids in a profound and meaningful way, one child at a time.
Chicago Run's mission is to promote the health and wellness of Chicago children through innovative, engaging, and sustainable youth running programs. It currently serve 17,000 students throughout Chicago in 46 Chicago Public Schools. 84% of Chicago Run participants qualify for free or reduced lunch. All donations will help Chicago Run support its initiative to reach more students and schools.
Folks, this shall be my last marathon. The last time I ask you for $26.20 or whatever amount you are able to donate. I won't ever stop supporting Chicago Run and all the people that make up this amazing organization. I won't stop running either, because I've grown to not hate it. But it's time for me to hang 'em up.
Thank you for your consideration and support. Your donation makes a difference and I consider it an honor to run for our Chicago students. Thanks again.
