This will be my second year running with Team OLA. Last year I had a great experience with the team, and enjoyed raising money for a great cause. This year I'm back again! Nothing compares to the Chicago Marathon and I'm so excited to take part in the marathon again. I'm currently training for another marathon coming up in June, and after that I will set my sights for Chicago. I've got some big goals I want to accomplish with both fundraising and running. Please consider donating to this great cause, any amount will make a huge difference.
Team Mission of Our Lady of the Angels will be fundraising through the 2020 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 raised from Team OLA 2020 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 45+ bedroom retreat center for volunteers and retreat guests. We are very excited to be opening this facility in 2020!
