Chicago Marathon Fundraising

My best friend, Jen Doornbos, and I are running the Chicago Marathon this October. This will be our first marathon and we want to run for the benefit of others. 

My cousin Kelly has recently moved into Bjorklund House. Bjorklund House is one of the three houses of CER Illinois (Covenant Enabling Residences). Money raised will not only benefit Kelly, but all of the residents. 

Every donation will go towards improving the home and daily lives of these disabled adults. 

CER promotes "independence, security and a fulfilling lifestyle for those with developmental disabilities" and we want to help them continue to do so. 

I am so blessed to have a cousin like Kelly in my life and I am thankful for this opportunity to share some happiness with her, since she has given my family and I so much happiness over the years. 

Thank you for your generosity. Cannot wait to run our first marathon for Kelly and CER!
