I decided to race with a charity for the 2011 Chicago Marathon. I did a few charity races last year and raised money for organizations like Cancer is Colorblind and Children’s Memorial Hospital but I didn’t run the marathon with a charity group.
Before I registered on February 1st I scanned the groups from top to bottom and read about many of the great groups to hopefully find one I could connect with. Towards to bottom of the list I saw Misericordia and immediately picked that as the group I’m running for.
My family has been working with Misericordia for years volunteering on Candy Day to Family Fest (say hi to my parents, Dad will be making funnel cakes and Mom calling BINGO). My cousin is a resident as Misericordia, My Uncle volunteers in the bakery, so to join their team and continue to support Misericordia seemed like the right thing to do.
I’m waiting to find out the date for the team “meet & greet” and to get set up to start accepting donations.
