ORGANIZER: CHICAGO PARKS FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015
Hello there my dear family, friends, colleagues and loved ones,
I am running the Chicago Marathon on October 11, 2015. I have been hard at work the past 2 months getting up early every day to beat the summer heat and train to successfully complete 26.2 miles. That's right...I am running twenty-six point two miles. I know I can do it!
I am running my FIRST marathon on behalf of the Chicago Park District Foundation. The Chicago Parks maintain everything from the lakefront trail that I run on every day, to the beaches and harbors we swim and boat, to the volleyball courts and softball fields.
I'm asking for your donation to support my fundraising goal of $1,500. Every dollar counts, but your larger donations mean a bit more :) For every $100 you donate, I will run a mile in your honor. You can even let me know which mile you would like to me run for you.
THANK YOU in advance for helping to cheer me on, and THANK YOU for your gift in support!
WHY TEAM CHIPARKS?
Because if it wasn’t for Chicago’s 580 parks and the 18 miles of Lakefront Trail, where would you run?
Every great city has a foundation to help support their parks, and the Chicago Parks Foundation is making that commitment here in Chicago. Team ChiParks is a community of runners committed to supporting and preserving Chicago's parks. Donate or join Team ChiParks today, and add meaning to your miles!
