THE STORY:

Hi friends!  

One marathon down, one to go!  

On Sunday, October 8, I crossed the finish line of the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon (after a rough second half), and on Sunday, October 15, I will run the 2017 PNC Milwaukee Marathon!  That's right-- two marathons, one week apart!

I'm running these marathons with Team CCO, the charity fitness team for Cornerstone Community Outreach.  This is a Chicago based social service agency that provides shelter to families and individuals, over 330 people each night.  Every $4 in donations provides ONE NIGHT of shelter for an individual (the shelter is located near Broadway & Wilson, in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood).  How about providing for ten shelter nights? Or an entire month?  Or more?  

In 2016 alone, Cornerstone Community Outreach provided or assisted with the following:

  * 269 people went from Homeless to Housed

  * 48 people gained employment

  * 200,000+ plates of food served

  * 311 Birth Certificates and State IDs were obtained

  * 2,920 visits to the "Free Store" (gently used items/clothing donated to CCO)

  * 22,500 Bags of Groceries

And between 2012-2016, 1,048 families and individuals went from Homeless to Housed with assistance/shelter provided by CCO.

God willing, this will be my 7th Chicago Marathon and 14th marathon overall (2x Miami, 2x Indianapolis, 1x Wisconsin, 1x St. Louis & 1x Berlin).  I can say from experience that training for and running a marathon is HARD, but you know what is NOT HARD?  Donating to a great cause like Cornerstone Community Outreach and helping people!  So please click on the link provided and help out with a generous donation!  

Thank you for visiting my page!
