BENEFITING: CHICAGO PARKS FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: CHICAGO PARKS FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
I'm running (my first marathon!) for the Chicago Parks Foundation, a fantastic organization that does so much work to maintain the parks and green spaces we use to stay fit, healthy, and happy. I've benefited so much from CPF's parks in my years as a Northwestern undergrad running into and around Chicago. As an environmental policy student and lover of the outdoors and running, this opportunity means a lot to me.
I'd so appreciate if you contributed to my campaign to help the CPF do its work for me and millions of Chicagoans. Even if you aren't from the Chicago area, you have a local foundation, group, or nonprofit that tirelessly works in your area to provide the spaces we all value for exercise and recreation. If you are interested in learning more about or giving back to your own local park organization(s), I'd love to hear from you.
Thank you for supporting me and the CPF. Expect more updates as I train and October 9th grows closer!
