Welcome to Abigail's Fundraising Page
On Sunday, October 13, 2019, I will represent Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) again at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon! As a member of Team RMHC, I am training for my third Chicago Marathon, fundraising, and ultimately running 26.2 miles in helping #keepingfamiliesclose.
I am fortunate that I live in the vicinity of world class hospitals, and I do not have to travel far to get the care that I need. I am currently being treated at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and my asthma is now under control. I was able to complete my first marathon in 2017. However, there are children who suffer from health conditions who do not have immediate access to these hospitals in their hometowns. 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.
I thank my family and friends for supporting me on this challenging journey. Thank you to my local running clubs Chicago Area Running Association, Fleet Feet Sports Chicago/Nike Racing, and Calumet Region Striders and my sponsors Rabbit, Biofreeze, Sarah Marie Design Studio, and Lily Trotters. Most of all, thank you to the donors, Ronald McDonald House Charities, and Team RMHC for helping families stay close.
