THE STORY:

Hi Everyone, So I have decided to run my very first marathon. I must admit I am a bit freaked out but also ready. I have chosen to run the Chicago Marathon in 2016 and raise funds for The Light of The Heart: A Community Art Therapy Project. The Light of The Heart is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit in Aurora, Illinois, that I co-founded with my awesome sister April Hedlund in 2011. Since then we have provided art therapy and counseling for over 3,000 children and adults in need, many of which are low-income and at-risk. My life goal is to bring light to the darkest corners of our society through art making. Please support me in running this marathon, which I know will be one of my greatest life challenges to date, and help provide art therapy and counseling for children in need in Aurora. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. With gratitude, Melissa Hedlund Nelson, MCAT, ATR-BC, LCPC
