On October 13, 2019 I will be running my first ever marathon, the Bank of American Chicago Marathon, in support of The Sports Shed. I grew up playing every sport under the sun- football, soccer, basketball, baseball, cross country and I continued playing basketball in college at Denison University. I would not be the person I am today if I was not an athlete. Sports have taught me life lessons that extend far beyond the field or sport.
With a vision of providing alternatives to gangs and violence for kids in under resourced communities through organized sports, I am so excited to be a part of The Sports Shed team. We provide quality sports equipment and ensure playing surfaces to schools and other athletic programs on the South and West Side of Chicago.
My goal is to raise $2,000 for The Sports Shed and I need your help! Please consider donating any bit that you can to help provide opportunity for all kids to get outside and learn life long lessons through sport.
