Joe Kash Marathon

Raising Money And Raising Awareness for OLA

I'm running the 2022 Bank of America Chicago to support Mission of Our Lady of the Angels! 

I thought that I had run my last Marathon but this last Fall, my daughter Emma asked me if I would be her training buddy to help her run her first Marathon. How could I resist? She inspires me with her goodness and her drive. So we both decided to make this a complete experience running for OLA. This is a physical, spiritual, personal, and charitable endeavor. I hope you can support us!

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.

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! 

Donate today to be part of the miracle that is TEAM OLA!

The Mission is a 501(c)(3) and relies entirely on the donations of private donors.
