I am running a half-marathon to raise money for East Village Youth Program's Scholarship Fund.

I am running my first half-marathon, the Chicago Monster, on Halloween. I have trained through the Florida summer, the hills of Massachusetts and Vermont, and the winds of Chicago. So far, I still have all of my limbs, though you can never be too sure.

I am running this race in honor of East Village. I feel privileged to have a job that is both challenging and inspiring. We now have more students in college than ever before (51!). As a scholarship-granting organization, the growth in our college program presents a new fundraising challenge. 100% of the donations here will be directed into our Scholarship Fund, ready to be distributed out to a student in January as the spring semester begins.

I am very proud to be running this race. I am grateful for the ongoing support of my family and friends. Many thanks!

Donations can also be mailed to EVYP:
3643 W. Belmont, Chicago, IL 60618
