I am excited to be running my second Chicgao Marathon in October 2020. I am running in honor of my beautiful mother, Jeannine O'Connor, who is missed deeply each and every day. I am running to to help continue to raise awareness and support for domestic violence survivors.
I was beyond gratefel for everyone's genorosity, love and support last year. These 26.2 miles and this charity mean an immense amount to me. Please continue to help me make a difference in my fight against domestic violence. Every little bit counts.
"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother."
We are domestic violence service providers from across the city of Chicago, who have come together to advance our cause in ending domestic violence. We recruit a team of dedicated runners to help us raise both money & awareness. All revenue generated by the Run DV Team is used by our member agencies for domestic violence prevention and supportive services for its survivors and their families.
We have an awesome team of runners in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and the Chicago Half Marathon/5K! The Chicago Marathon takes place in October, which is also National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Through community engagement our team intends to make use of a new resource for consciousness and fund-raising via this iconic Chicago event.
The Run DV Coalition is an unprecedented collaboration representing diverse populations across Chicago. Our domestic violence agencies are located in neighborhoods throughout the city and suburbs, and serve communities representing all races, ethnicities, and religions.
