Wait, that dork Alex is going to run 26.2 miles???
DARN TOOTIN'! And while he's at it, we're going to help put food in the bellies of our neighbors in need too!
Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to visit this page, and for considering to make a donation to a charity near and dear to my heart. It is an unfortunate truth that I was lucky to never have to think about where my next meal was going to come from. For the amount of food that we grow & prepare on this earth, there is no excuse for anyone to be hungry, let alone in a city as amazing as Chicago. Yet, people who look no different from you or me, are.
That’s what makes organizations like The Greater Chicago Food Depository so important! For every dollar donated, we’re helping to stock food pantries, provide lunches to children in the summertime when the cafeteria is closed, fueling the vehicles that transport meals to those in need all throughout Cook County, and so much more.
And of course, this wouldn’t be written by me if I didn’t provide an example for context. That $25 food delivery order you’re planning on putting in to hit the order minimum? You can afford to trade that in for a donation! Because you’ve already got a quick, tasty meal waiting to be cooked sitting in your fridge & pantry. And that $25? The Greater Chicago Food Depository has the resources, knowledge, and experience to stretch that to feed healthy meals to many people. Let’s help 'em out!
Every little bit counts, so even if all you can donate is $1, know that it is incredibly appreciated, and I won't let you down!
P.S. Feel free to follow me on Strava, where you'll be able to see all of my training runs leading up to the big race in October, even tease me about my pace if you feel inclined.
