Support Michelle's Marathon!
Amount Raised
Fundraising Goal $3,500.00

My Message

I am about to become a runner. A marathon runner, no less.

You see, there are a lot of things I'd like to do in my life, but I've always kept them at arm's length as "one day" or "never going to actually happen."  I'd like to change that thinking and prove that I can do anything I put my mind to - even the rather difficult, perhaps crazy ideas.

Running only for myself won't get me up at dawn on cold winter days. I am inspired by Special Olympics Olympians who work so hard and achieve so much, surpassing others' expectations with joy and humor. For them, I will get out of bed. May I also find joy and humor in my training!

I hope you will consider supporting SO Chicago by donating to my run! Your support will also get me out of bed and through those days when I just don't wanna.


BTW - does your employer match donations? If so, please be sure to check that box on your donation page!

Rock this Michelle! I can't run with you in person but I'll run with you in spirit. And my invitation to train on the hills of New Hampshire is always open. Seriously - buns of steel.
