Part of Family Matters Walkathon | October 15, 2016

I just ran 26.2 miles on the 9th, *and* I’m walking in Family Matters’ 27th Annual Walkathon on October 15th! I hope you’ll support me in raising funds for this important organization!

Family Matters connects at-risk youth and their families in Northeast Rogers Park to opportunities (resources, relationships, and real-world experiences) that support them in actualizing their life goals and building a strong, healthy community. For 29 years, Family Matters has operated programs and initiatives that promote safe space, educational support and leadership development among low-income families.

The 27th Annual Walkathon will raise crucial funds to support Family Matters’ four Youth Programs, which meet after school: Family Connections (literacy and leadership for youth ages 5-12), Boys to Men (Teen Boys Program), Transforming Genius into Powerful love (Teen Girls Program), and Evening Tutoring (during which 40 tutor-mentor pairs meet weekly for academic support and relationship-building).

Please consider making a donation to support my walk and Family Matters – every dollar makes a difference!
