On October 8th, 2017, I will be running the Bank of America 2017 Chicago Marathon and raising money to help teach Chicago's elementary school students' nutrition education and cooking skills to fight childhood obesity, and promote a culture of health.
This is my 6th marathon and I am excited to give back and run for a wonderful cause this year! My goal is to raise $1,000 by October 2017 which will go towards the charity I will be running for, Common Threads. I ask you for your help in making a donation towards reaching my goal.Any amount is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
