Running for Chicago Run!
Please help me cross the finish line of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. I am running for Chicago Run a fantastic organization that provides running programs in Chicago Public Schools in some of the most at risk neighborhoods in the city. Not only does the program help fight childhood obesity through running, but also promotes a healthy and active lifestyle while also building self esteem!
Your donation will help keep the program active in many schools but also aid in the implementation into more schools!
