Help Pale support Team Special Olympics Chicago!
Hi everyone, looking for your help! I am excited to annouce I am running the 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 13 with The Special Olympics Chicago marathon team (Team SOC) . Not only will I be supporting The Special Olympics, Aon and bettering myself, I am fortunate to be able to run it along with my brother-in-arms, Luis Ortiz, on the US Navy's birthday!
My story is easy, I decided last March to make some serious changes and recommit my life to an active and healthy lifestyle. I was in a physical rut for a while but I’ve been re-energized, mostly by my soon to be 6 yr old son! I’m down over 65+ lbs and feeling great! Looking to sustain this momentum for the long-haul and help others along the journey.
