My Personal Fundraising Page
Hi all! I'm running the 2022 Bank of America Chicago Marathon to support Mission of Our Lady of the Angels!
I've personally volunteered with this mission and am passionate about their purpose of providing support to Chicago families. All of the effort I've put in training for this event is nothing compared to the hard work that the men and women of this organization put in serving their community.
Mission of Our Lady of the Angels exists to provide material and spiritual support to W. Humboldt Park, Chicago- one of the most challenged neighborhoods in the US. The Mission feeds about 3000 families a month, provides additional material and pastoral support to families, youth, and senior citizens, and, most importantly, brings the love of Christ to a neighborhood desperately in need of hope. More info about the Mission at www.missionola.com.
Funds raised from Team OLA 2022 will be used to:
(1) Help the Mission expand its food pantry + other material distributions
-Mission of Our Lady of the Angels currently serves about 3000 families a month- and growing!
-Help the Mission continue to expand and improve this outreach.
(2) Help the Mission successfully start using its new outreach center!
- Mission OLA will be rolling out all of the *new* things in its new outreach center in 2022. The new 57 bedroom retreat center and social service outreach spaces will start to be put to use.
-There will be costs for last minute fixes of the building as well as for getting the programming rolling! Help support this roll out!
