Please support Cabrini Connections via the Running for Cabrini team!!!

Cabrini Connections is a tutoring-mentoring program for students in grades 7 to 12. Each student is paired with a tutor and meets with him or her at Cabrini Connections for two hours each week. The center - equipped with computers, reference books and school supplies - has specialized clubs (video and filmmakers club, writing club, art club), offers ACT prep classes, is also open to students on during summer break and much more.

Our Vision: Every child who joins is starting a job and career of his or her choice by age 25.

Our Mission: Engage workplace adults in structured activities that make a life-changing difference for youth living in economically and educationally disadvantaged neighborhoods.

Since 1993, more than 525 teens and more than 850 volunteers have participated in the program for at least one year.

"THANKS EVERYONE THAT HAS BEEN THERE FOR ME THROUGH IT ALL AND THAT BELIEVED IN ME! ALL THE HARD WORK HAS PAID OFF."

In its second year, the Cabrini Madness fundraising effort coincides with college hoops' March Madness. Teams of volunteers and students have formed to compete to raise the most money for Cabrini Connections between early February and April 4, 2011 - the day of the NCAA championship game. Last year, students and tutors on 13 fundraising teams raised $23,000!

Many of our Running for Cabrini team members will be running this spring in honor of Cabrini Connections.

The team members are:
Catherine Mugeria (volunteer, captain) - Shamrock Shuffle & Soldier Field 10 Mile
