On October 12, 2014 I will be running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon to raise funds for the Chicago Fire Foundation.
The foundation devlops programs that reach out to Chicagoland's community. Since 1998, the Chicago Fire Foundation, the charitable arm of the Chicago Fire Major League Soccer Team, has made significant contributions to enhance the lives of disadvantaged youth throughout Chicagoland.
Each year, the Chicago Fire Foundation renews its commitment to improve the quality of life for youth and communities throughout Chicagoland by promoting health and wellness, education and the environment. The Foundation also supports organizations that share this vision so as to further extend the investment needed to make a meaningful impact on the lives of our children.
The Chicago Fire Foundation is a non-profit organization that helps the Chicago Fire contribute to the community through grants and contributions. With great pride, the Foundation has contributed more than $1.5 million to the Chicagoland community since its inception in 1998. This outstanding achievement gives the Chicago Fire Foundation even more reason to set its sights on grander projects for the future.
