If you are losing faith in human nature, go out and watch a marathon. -Kathrine Switzer
On October 11th, I will be representing Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) at the 2020 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.
When I ran my first 1/2 marathon, I raised money for a charity and it felt right to do that for my first full marathon as well. When Savannah was in ICU for pneumonia for three days a couple of years ago, I was lucky enough to live near the hospital. I had the support and resources I needed to focus on my little girl.
I think about parents that don't live nearby and need a close place to stay to focus on their child and their health. RMHC helps make this happen for families - keeping families together is what they do!
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! In addition to raising money, training for a marathon, we also bake cookies for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House here in Columbus.
Please support me in my pursuit of being part of a marathoner and running 26.2 miles to support families in our communities.
