Get Joie to Chicago 2023!
As you all know, I’m obsessed with running. Since my mom’s passing in January of 2021, it’s been my therapy. I ran my first marathon in April of 2022, and now have my eyes set on Boston! In order to get there I want to run Chicago! What could be better than running? Running for a cause!
While Mom was being evaluated we were able to take some respite during a long day at the hospital at the Ronald McDonald House thanks to my step-sister, Jaye. I’ve chosen them as my charity to run for to give back for the kindness everyone showed to her and us during that time. I thank you for any contribution made, not for me, but my sweet sweet Mama! - Joie
On October 8th, I will be representing Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) at the 2023 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.
Did you know RMHC helps millions of families each year? RMHC helps families cope better and focus on the needs of their sick child, allowing them the ability to spend more time with their child, to interact with their doctors, and to make important decisions about their child’s care.
It costs approximately $100 to give a family one night of comfort and support. 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!
