BENEFITING: United Way of Metropolitan Chicago
ORGANIZER: United Way of Metropolitan Chicago
EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2014
I moved to Chicago at the tail end of 2013, and have loved my short time as a Chicagoan. As tremendous as this city is, there are a huge amount of very glaring and systemic problems that are unfortunately part of its fabric.
The United Way is an organization that makes an immensely positive impact on communities across the Greater Chicago area. Through partnerships with corporations and community leaders, they are able to mobilze incredible resources and direct it to those who need it most. I don't need to go on about the great things the United Way does, because I'm almost certain each of you know first hand.
Running the Chicago Marathon means a great deal to me. It is one of the most exciting and iconic marathons, winding through the streets of this magnificent city. The opportunity to run to benefit from the United Way makes it all the more meaningful.
I would like to ask for your financial support for the United Way of Metropolitan Chicago. Your support means a great deal to myself, the UWMC, and the City of Chicago.
