Urban Initiatives' newest Associate Board Member, Kaitlin Straits is running a Ragnar Relay Race from Chicago to Madison on May 18-19 and we need your help to fundraise for her race. All funds raised will be donated to Urban Initiatives!
Kaitlin's team of 12 has committed to running 200 miles from Chicago, Illinois to Madison, Wisconsin for a Ragnar Relay. She is dedicating her run to Urban Initiatives!
A few months ago, Kaitlin had the opportunity to volunteer with the kids to play in UI's Work to Play program. When asked about her experience, Kaitlin shared, "I could tell one of the kids was nervous so I introduced myself and he shared he had never played soccer. I told him we were all learning together and the only thing he needed to do was try his hardest and put his heart into it. Later in the game, he looked over at me and covered his heart with his hand, and dove back into another play."
DONATE TO THE CAUSE
Why should you donate? Kaitlin says, "The spirit and teamwork inspired me and I got so much from just a few hours working with the kids. Nothing would make me happier than being able to give back for all they gave me!"
