BENEFITING: JUNIOR LEAGUE OF CHAMPAIGN URBANA INC
ORGANIZER: JUNIOR LEAGUE OF CHAMPAIGN URBANA INC
EVENT DATE: Apr 27, 2013
You may know that I tend to support and promote organizations and events I care about. This fundraiser presents an opportunity to bring a few of my worlds together and share the combination of several of my interests with the folks who matter to me. I've been a volunteer and member of Junior League of Champaign-Urbana for years, and have also participated in the Illinois Marathon races as a walker and front yard cheerer since they first started sending marathoners down my block in year one.
These races bring our community together and visitors to our little patch of the prairie in an uncommon and special way, and I think that's just great. Junior League unites women in our region to fill social service gaps in our community in novel, organized, practical, and impactful ways. We're getting a lot done here by being creative, working smart and working hard. Every donation dollar's value is leveraged by the volunteer person power that drives this organization. Please join Lynford, Ellis and me as we run-walk-roll in the races and contribute to this effort. ~ Tiy
