This past January, I joined the Young Professionals Board of an amazing non-profit called Good Sports here in Chicago, and on July 21st Derek and I will be running 13.1 Miles (21.1 kms for the Canadians) to raise money for the kids!
Good Sports’ mission is to give all kids the lifelong benefits of sport and physical activity by providing new equipment, apparel and footwear to youth organizations in high-need areas, such as Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCAs, schools and more. Alleviating the cost of equipment enables organizations to lower fees and improve their programming. Chicago is a priority market due to the tremendous need of local youth.
Sports have been an instrumental part of both my own and Derek's lives and we couldn't be more excited to run in support of this worthwhile cause. Together, Good Sports and our 2019 Rock 'n' Roll Chicago Half Marathon Team will give kids the chance to succeed on the court, on the field and in life.
Every contribution truly makes an impact so please help power us across the finish line and get more kids in the game!! Thank you in advance for your consideration.
