My Personal Fundraising Page

My name is Timothy Kennedy. While a recent resident of Chicago, I have already fallen in love with this great city. I have been running since 2009, when I joined my high school cross country team in my hometown of Flint, MI. My first marathon was in Cambridge, MA in October of 2019, ten years later, after becoming infected by the marathon energy inescapable in the city of Boston. My goal for the Chicago Marathon 2022 is to qualify for Boston and return triumphant to run the world's most famous running race. On the way, I can never forget my roots, especially after Flint, MI gained worldwide attention during the Flint Water Crisis (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flint_water_crisis). In running, I am not just running for myself also for others, to bring brotherly love to my neighbors wherever I may live. Thank you for donating to support the impactful and faith-filled work done by Mission of Our Lady of the Angels. More info on the Mission and what your donation goes towards is below!

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

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! 

Donate today to be part of the miracle that is TEAM OLA! Corporate sponsors (businesses donating $250+) will have their logo featured on the main fundraising page and the Mission OLA Marathon Website.

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