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’m running the 2019 Chicago Marathon and the Shamrock Shuffle for Mission Our Lady of the
Angels, a Catholic Mission serving the poor on Chicago’s West side. The Mission
serves over 700 families a month with food and other basic material needs,
assists at risk kids in after-school programs, serves bi-weekly community meals
and, most importantly, brings the hope of Christ to a neighborhood plagued by
gangs, violence, and poverty.
I am committed to train (running over 600 miles), to running an 8k on March 24 for the Shamrock Shuffle and 26.2
miles on Marathon Sunday (October 13), and I am committed to
raising money to support Mission OLA. I need your prayers to persevere through
training and finish the race and the Mission needs your financial support. The
Mission is able to provide all of its services to its neighbors for free
because of many generous donations from people like you. If you are able,
please consider donating.
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
