ORGANIZER: UPS FOR DOWNS NFP
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
I have the privilege of running the 39th Annual 2016 Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 9th, as a charity athlete to benefit the UPS for DownS Angel Endurance Team! This year will be my TENTH straight running of the Chicago Marathon all on behalf of this wonderful charity.
I am honored and blessed to run on behalf Alaina Vargas and Jack Ford.
Alaina is the daughter of Nelson and Heather Vargas. Alaina is now 12 years old and just graduated from the 6th grade and will be in Jr. High!! Alaina is a loving sister to her two younger brothers Nelson and Nicholas.
Alaina is currently in theater camp and will be performing as an elf in the play Elf Jr. Thru the park district and she had her dance recital in June dancing to Smooth Criminal. She is a sports addict (yeah!) who enjoys playing soccer and basketball. She enjoys participating in the Early Teen Scene thru UFD which has involved events like bowling, lazer tag and plays. Alaina continues to inspire me and I am soooo proud of her and that I have been be able to watch her grow up into a wonderful, caring young girl!!
Jack is the son of Terri and Jim Ford. Jack is 23 and works at a local hospital as well as a sub shop! Jack is the older brother to Kate and David.
Jack is super passionate about about theater, musicals and old movies! He knows more about the movies and can say every word of all the old movies and musicals than anyone I know! It has been a pleasure to watch Jack grow up to be an outstanding young man and great member of his community! Warning.. if you are out and about with Jack in Chicago, or anywhere, I can guarantee you that someone will know him...Everyone knows Jack!
Over the past 10 years, Alaina and Jack have inspired me in so many ways and I am blessed to have them and the entire charity "family" in my life!
