THE STORY:

For all those that know me well, they know how important running is to me and that I believe there is nothing that cannot be cured by a long run. The mission of Girls on the Run hit home for me, as they strive to make a difference in the lives of young ladies throughout our country, and I knew I wanted to be a part of that effort. When the opportunity to run for their team in the Chicago Marathon presented itself, I knew I had to jump on it!


I am initially from Illinois, being born in Palos Park, and have almost all of my extended family still in the Chicago area. My family moved to Hopkinton, Massachusetts when I was young, but my parents still refer to Chicago as "home". Although Chicago is a home base for our family, Hopkinton contributed so many wonderful things to my childhood, one of them being a love for running. The town of Hopkinton is the start of the Boston Marathon and I quickly fell in love with the excitement, determination, and values that are involved with the marathon and running in general. 


I was finally able to achieve my goal of running the Boston Marathon in 2014 and now I look forward to getting the opportunity to run where so many of my family members still reside, in the city of Chicago. As I look into making this a possibility, I cannot imagine running for a better team than Girls on the Run Chicago. I am hoping I can reach my fundraising goal of $1500 and continue to become even more involved with this organization that embodies so much of what I believe in.


To learn more about Girls on the Run, read the note below from Girls on the Run Chicago or visit https://www.girlsontherun.org :

Girls on the Run is an afterschool program for girls ages 8-14 that uses the power of running to inspire girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. The program combines training for a non-competitive 5k running event with interactive lessons that encourage positive social-emotional and physical development among participants. More than 85% of girls taking part in the program receive some sort of financial assistance to participate. All funds raised by the Girls on the Run SoleMates Team go to underwrite program scholarships so that any girl can participate in this life-changing programing, regardless of her family's ability to pay the program fee.
