Smiles for Miles
We are SMILES FOR MILES. :-)
We may all be very different from one another. We are both men and women. We are young and old. We come from all different parts of the country. We are all different shapes and sizes. We are different ethnicities, backgrounds and religions. But we all have THREE major things in common.
We are RUNNERS, we truly CARE about others, and SMILING'S our favorite! We all have found fitness and running for whatever reason, and WE JUST RUN. The marathon is the ULTIMATE accomplishment for many of us! Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.
All of us have found that running for a REASON and GIVING to others is truly the greatest gift we can offer. Not to mention, a SMILE can go a long way. So, on October 8th, we will be representing Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon! Many of us have become close friends from previous years of running, and some of us are newbies! Either way, we will be training, fudnraising and ultimately running 26.2 miles to help keep families close!
Since 1974, RMHC has been making children happier and healthier by keeping families together - giving them a place to rest and refresh. A place that feels like home. You too can join RMHC's network by supporting our efforts - $25 can provide dinner for a family, $80 can give a family a room for a night. Your donation will not only help us achieve our goal, but it will help children stay close to their families when they need it most!
