Help Shelton survive 26.2!!!
On October 13th, I will be representing Spencer Stuart and Ronald McDonald House Charities at the 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon! I am nervous, yet excited to run 26.2 miles alongside 75 Spencer Stuart colleagues from around the world. We have folks from 22 SSI offices, and I am proud to represent the Atlanta crew.
After running five half marathons, I never got to the finish line wishing I'd run another 13 miles, and I vowed to myself I'd never sign up for a full. But, a few of my closest colleagues signed up for the race and knew I can't say no and hate missing out on an adventure, so... here we are!! I
Spencer Stuart has chosen to partner with the Ronald McDonald House and support their incredible cause. RMHC works tirelessly to ensure that families are together while their seriously ill or injured child receives treatment. These families endure so much emotional stress and turmoil, and RMHC helps relieve some of these burdens. Over $2.3M million is saved by families per day in meal costs and lodging alone because of RMHC.
Will you help support me in this crazy endeavor? Please help me stay positive while training in the balmy 100 degree heat of Atlanta and remind me of how accomplished I'll feel afterwards. Also, each team member has a goal of raising $1250, so I'd be so grateful if you feel led to make a donation. Any donation, large or small, goes such a long way in providing support to families in need. $25 provides dinner for an entire family, and $80 gives a family a room for the night -- we can really make a difference!
I wouldn't be here without you all, so thank you for supporting me!! Wish me luck -- I will DEFINITELY need it.
