With less than 100 days left until the 2020 Chicago marathon, I am pledging $1 to Misericordia/Heart of Mercy for every mile I run now through race day, October 11th. Though the marathon is predicted to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I am continuing to train and will run 26.2 miles in San Antonio on race day should they proceed with cancellation.
My cousin Connor moved into Misericordia in November and I've loved seeing his updates on it throughout the year!
Many of Misericordia's fundraisers have been cancelled or been made virtual this year. If you'd like to join me in donating to Misericordia/Heart of Mercy, I invite you to match my donations by mileage per day, week, month or anything in between! I so appreciate it.
If you are unfamiliar with Misericorida, here's a little bit about them:
