Eric Plackett - Run 4J
On October 13th, I will be representing Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) at the 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon! As a member of Team RMHC, I will be training, fundraising and ultimately running 26.2 miles to help keep families together.
Our good friends, the Colwell's, lost their 17-month old son Jackson unexpectedly in November 2018. RMHC provided Jen and Joel with hot meals and a place to eat/replenish their spirits while at the hospital caring for Jackson. One of the ways they are trying to heal as a family is training for this run together, as it gives them a focal point and an opportunity to give back to a great charity that helps parents with sick children. Let's create as many positives as we can in Jack's memory.
Did you know $25 can provide dinner for a family and $80 can give a family a room for a night? Your donation, of any amount, will not only help me achieve my goal, but will help children stay close to their families when they need it most!
