Hey everyone! I did my first Half Ironman last year, but that didn't satisfy my endurance sports urge enough, so I'm running my first full Marathon this year!
This is my fundraising page for Team Our Lady of the Angels. Please help me reach my goal and help this great cause!
I found out about the Mission of Our Lady of the Angels from my wife's friend, and I was sold from the very beginning. It's truly an honor to participate on this team and help fundraise for a Mission that has such a positive impact on society. If there's one thing that's going to get me through the hundreds of training miles and ultimately all 26.2 miles at once on October 13th, it's going to be the fact that I'm running for such a great cause. Please consider donating to this wonderful group, any amount is greatly appreciated, and even more, please send LOTS of prayers for all of the runners!
Team Mission of Our Lady of the Angels will be fundraising through the 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon and Shamrock Shuffle!
Mission of Our Lady of the Angels exists to provide material and spiritual support to the West Humboldt Park, Chicago- one of the most challenged neighborhoods in the United States. The Mission feeds about 1000 families a month, provides additional material and pastoral support to families, youth, and senior citizens, and, most importantly, brings the love of Christ to a neighborhood desperately in need of hope.
Funds will be used to complete the renovation 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.

The Mission is a 501(c)(3) and relies entirely on the donations of private donors.
