My name is Gerardo and I am running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon this year to help raise money for the non-profit Border Angels. Border Angels is a wonderful organization based out of San Diego and Tijuana that helps advocate for human rights, humane immigration reform, as well as social justice. Some of the services that they provide include free immigration consultations, educational programs, water drops, day labor outreach, and Caravans of Love. I chose this cause because the recent treatment of immigrants by the government is inhumane and this organization is doing their part to help at this trying time. I ask you to please take the time to donate to this cause. Thank you.
