My Message

Dear Family, Friends, and Colleagues:

I have the honor of running the Chicago Marathon this fall in support of Special Olympics. Last year, many of you generously supported my entry and the athletes that benefit from this amazing organization formed right here in the City of Big Shoulders. May I count on your support again in 2017?

As you may know, this cause is deeply personal to me given my work as a youth with special needs children and later when my brother was diagnosed with Hunter’s Syndrome. While Scotty left us 15 years ago, not a day goes by when he doesn’t cross my mind and I run miles because he cannot and tragically never had the ohance.

But thanks to Special Olympics, kids like Scotty have incredible opportunities to compete in a range of athletic events before hundreds, even thousands of spectators. Sports defined my early life and made me who I am today. My days still begin with a run and end with a ballgame on TV. Every kid, regardless of ability, deserves a similar, formative experience on the field, track, or courts.

Please join me in support of Special Olympics Chicago. Your generous contribution will fuel my push for a PR, Boston qualifying time, and most importantly give kids like Scotty an unforgettable athletic experience.

From the bottom of my heart, thanks in advance for your time, consideration, and generosity.

Yours in running,
