I will be running the Chicago Country Sole Half Marathon on Saturday, October 20th to raise money for Chicago Children's Charities. CCC's mission is to improve the lives of children in the Chicagoland area. We support 7 different charities through fundraising efforts and volunteering. These are “grassroots” organizations who are dedicated to serving local children. From running summer camps and after school programs to teaching fine arts and poetry, each organization uniquely touches the lives of those they serve. By focusing on such organizations, many of which are unknown outside of their communities, every dollar that we contribute has a significant impact. In fact, some of our beneficiaries would be unable to operate without our ongoing support. Run entirely by volunteers, we are able to minimize overhead costs and maximize donations to our beneficiaries. I hope to raise over $2,500 this year for CCC (to top what I was able to raise last year) and would love your support! Any amount is greatly appreciated.
