2018 Breakthrough Running Club

The 2018 Breakthrough Running Club is off to a great start but we need your help providing these incredible kids with good running shoes!

On Monday, October 1st, we are taking these amazing student runners to Fleet Feet Sports Chicago for a private professional shoe fitting party where each kid will get fitted for the biomechanically correct shoes for them and their future running endeavors! 

We need your help though, we need to raise $1,500 in just 5 days to provide the 15-20 BT Runners with their new running shoes on Tuesday.  

Would you be willing to join us and make a donation?  Anna (my bride) and I are in for the first $100....let's go!

P.S.  Running club, which meets every weekend in the fall as these kids train for some fall races, is just one of the many sports ministries Breakthrough puts on to build connections, develop skills and open doors of opportunity for the families and children in Chicago's East Garfield Park.
