Hey, everyone! This is my first time running the Chicago Marathon and I could not be more excited! Last year was a bummer with the cancelation, but I am back at it for 2021! The long hours of training are going to be worth it when I cross the finish line!
I am running this year's marathon through a charity called Chicago Commons. I am one of ten runners selected and I am very honored! One aspect that drew me to this organization was their work with people of all ages. They have been around for 125 years and are one of the oldest charties in the area. This organization supports local families of all ages from early education to senior services. As a special education teacher, I understand the value of early education and STEM programs and how benefical they are.
This orgaization also supports over 3,000 people and families with finding employment opportunites and finances to ensure the whole family is able to take part in the resources provided.
I encourage you to share this link and spread the word about the benefits Chicago Commons has on the community! I appreciate ALL your support. There is no way I would be able to do this adventure without it!
