Tim Bulat's Our Lady of the Angels 2022 Fundraising Page

MY STORY

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

As many of you know, I've been running for the last 10 years and running marathons since 2016.  But this is the first event I am doing with a charity fundraising goal.  Running Chicago in support of OLA was recommended to me by my uncle and prolific awesome marathoner Jim Toulouse, who ran in 2013.  I'm honored to be able to take this recommendation in support of a Christian charity helping poor neighborhoods in Chicago.  So often, I enjoy the race experience without paying attention to the difficult urban challenges that persist after race day, and beyond the carefully selected race routes.  I'm thrilled to be able to run this world major while truly supporting the city.

Kate & I have contributed the minimum fundraising requirement for Chicago.  So no one should feel pressure to donate just so that I can run the race or anything like that.  But please do consider adding to our donation to further support this cause.

 

ABOUT 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!  

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