Run for Pat Peggs

On October 13, 2013, Richard, Emily, and Danny Chapman are each running the 26.2 mile Bank of America Chicago Marathon to honor the life and legacy of Patricia Peggs who passed away suddenly in November 2012. Pat was a dear friend and colleague and her commitment to challenging herself physically, intellectually, and spiritually was an inspiration to all. She was an active and devout member of the Salem Baptist Church of Chicago who attended Prairie State College at night to earn her degree. Sadly, she passed with only one class to complete to graduate. Prairie, nonetheless, bestowed her with an honorary degree.

That's why in 2012, Patricia's family and co-workers at Clark Hill PLC provided the first donations to the Patricia Peggs Scholarship Fund for Adult Women (www.ppsffaw.org). It is the goal of the Peggs Fund to provide scholarships for women over 40 who are members of Salem to help them to earn their college degrees and to see their dreams come true. With Pat's spirit in mind, running the marathon presents us with the opportunity to honor her courage, perseverance, and optimism and do our part to make sure that her name and memory remain bright light in support of the efforts of others to reach their potential. We look forward to your support of the Peggs Fund and, hopefully, seeing you along the Marathon route.
