While races are cancelled in 2020, running is not! I have, however, needed a little motivation to get out for my runs when there are no more goal races on the calendar for which to train. I decided to embark on a quest to run every street in Vernon Hills, Illinois. I thougtht it would be nice to turn my personal endeavor into a fundraiser as I zero in on the last two weeks. I set a deadline of October 31st. I have 53 streets to go (as of 10/17).
I chose Fill A Heart 4 Kids because from my personal expereince as an adoptee, having parents who were foster parents, and spenting a portion of my career working in the foster care space, this organization not only speaks to my heart, but I know what a valuable resource it is - and it's local. I hope you will join me.
