 EVANSTON, IL
My name is Margaret Bamgbose. I graduated from Evanston Township High School in 2012 and I recently graduated from the University of Notre Dame in the Spring of 2016. During my time at Notre Dame I participated in track and field for four years. I ran the 200 meter dash as well as the 4x400 and 4x100 meter relays, however, my specialty was the 400 meter dash. This summer I was selected by the Nigerian team to run the 400 meter dash as well as the 4x400 in the upcoming Summer Olypmic Games! This year the  Olympic games are in Rio and I would love for my family to be able to come and watch me compete in this once in a lifetime event. Please consider giving whatever you can to help my family make the trip to Rio to watch me run.  My family and I would greatly appreciate it!

I want to thank everyone for the all the support I've received in these last couple months as I've been preparing for Rio especially from the Evanston community and my Notre Dame family! I've been lucky to have so many generous people donate and share my story and have been able to raise nearly $11k. These donations have made it possible for my family to watch me in Rio! I couldn't have done it without all the tremendous support I've received! At this time I will no longer be accepting donations, thank you so much to everyone!

Hey Everyone, I just wanted to give a quick update. I placed 3rd at the Nigerian trials in the 400m, which qualifies me to represent Nigeria at the Olympics in Rio in August! Our 4x400 relay also qualified by placing top 16 in the world! I am so grateful for everyone's prayers and support through this journey so far and I am really blessed.
