No distance is too far to save a child.

On Sunday, October 13, 2019, I will be taking on a monumental task - running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.

 

Many of you probably remember me saying  "I'm never running another marathon again" but here we are.  After a grueling 6 hour run upon the Great Wall of China, I remembered why I love running. 

 

Running allows me to get out of my head and into the present.  It challenges my body, my mind, and my spirit but leaves me feeling confident, strong, and unstoppable. 

 

This year,  I am passionate about providing a safe and loving home for the children of Mercy Home for Boys & Girls.

 

Your generous gift, and my 29-neighborhood journey of Chicago, will change the lives of children in need. Thank you for helping me cross the finish line in fundraising, and on race day, with your support of this effort.

 

xo,

Alison

Mercy Home has saved thousands of young lives

Since 1887, Mercy Home has saved thousands of young lives from environments marked by neglect, abuse, and despair. With our help, Mercy Home is able to give our kids the chance to not just survive but thrive. Mercy Home provides guidance for healing and growth, support to get caught up in school, and the tools to build a successful and self-reliant future. Last year alone, Mercy Home served more than 750 youth and families through their residential, aftercare, mentoring, and referral programs.

And because Mercy Home is 99.9% privately funded, the support of people just like you and me is critical to our mission. I am running to ensure Mercy Home will continue to have the resources it needs to give these kids hope for tomorrow. As Mercy Home Heroes, we believe no distance is too far to save a child.

Help pave the way to a brighter future for troubled children and teens in Chicago.
