This is my fundraiser for Team Our Lady of the Angels 2019 campaign. Please help me reach my goal and help this great cause!
I am running my first marathon, and I'm glad I am able to achieve that goal alongside Our Lady of the Angels! I am running for this mission and for my donors! I will be offering up every mile for a special intention of a donor along with the Our Lady of the Angels Mission! I am looking for 26 donors of $50 to reach my donation goal of $1,250, please include any special intentions you would like my to offer up during the marathon.
Any other donations would be greatly appreciated because this mission relies on purely donations to operate.
I'm excited for training and this new experience, know that whoever visits this site I will pray for you! May the peace of Jesus Christ be with you now and forever!
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.
