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 excited to inform you that I’m fundraising (since I’m not allowed to run a marathon almost 6 months pregnant ;)) the 2019 Chicago Marathon for Mission Our Lady of the Angels, a Catholic Mission serving the poor on Chicago’s West side. The Mission serves 1000+ 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 hope of Christ to a neighborhood plagued by gangs, violence and poverty.
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.
