Support Team OLA!

Here we go again. In June, I will start training for the 2021 Chicago Marathon, which I will run as a member of Team Our Lady of the Angels. Mission Our Lady of the Angels is a Franciscan Mission serving Chicago's West Humboldt Park neighborhood. I trained for the 2020 Marathon last year, which was canceled due to COVID-19, but Team OLA still ran an alternative marathon on October 10, 2020. I finished in 3.47, which was about 15 minutes slower than I was hoping, but not bad for my first marathon. So this year I'm going to run the real thing, shooting for 3.30, and I would be grateful for your support.

Mission OLA serves 1000 families per month with food and other basic material needs, assists at-risk children in after school programs, serves community meals and brings hope to a neighborhood that has struggled with neglect, violence and poverty. Members of the Mission have worked tirelessly to support the community during the COVID-19 pandemic and to ensure distribution of food and essential items after local businesses closed in the wake of social unrest triggered by the murder of George Floyd.

I have pledged to raise $3500 for the Mission by November 1, 2021. Please support the Mission's work -- and my run! -- with a donation. Any amount is appreciated! Thank you!!
