Neal Schutt and I have
committed to running the 2020 Chicago
Marathon for Mission Our Lady of the Angels, a Catholic Mission which exists to provide
material and spiritual support to the West Humboldt Park neighborhood in
Chicago – one of the poorest neighborhoods in the City of Chicago. The Mission
serves 1,000+ families a month with food and other basic material needs,
assists at risk kids in after-school programs, serves bi-monthly community meals,
and, most importantly, brings the love of Christ to a neighborhood desperately in
need of hope.
We are raising money to support the Mission on the way to the finish line. Funds will be used to complete the renovation & begin the programing out of the Mission's new outreach center to the poor in West Humboldt Park, Chicago. The new outreach center will provide the very needed space for the Mission's donation storage/ distribution, a handicapped accessible kitchen/ dining room, meeting space for neighborhood and retreat groups, and a 60+ bedroom retreat center for volunteers and retreat guests.
