Support my first marathon as part of Team OLA 2023!

I'm running the 2023 Bank of America Chicago to support Mission of Our Lady of the Angels! 

I chose to support Team OLA because I’ve had the opportunity to volunteer at their food pantry a few times & the experiences were so fulfilling. Everyone on the OLA team is always so gracious & energized, and the neighbors we served expressed such gratitude & joy that it was an easy choice to support this cause.

When I decided to register last fall, I was at a personal low. I was sad, stressed, and out of shape. I had done a few races & liked it, but was scared to commit to the full thing. Since, I’ve emphasized taking better care myself in all aspects and all glory be to God for His grace & showing me how setting challenging goals has helped me grow.

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 2023 will be used to:

(1) Help the Mission expand its food pantry + other material distributions

(2) Help the Mission successfully start using its new outreach center!

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