Thank you for your consideration to donate to Lisa's 2020 Chicago Marathon fundraiser for the American Heart Association. I am very excited (and some say...probably a bit crazy) to be running 26.2 miles.
I am running to honor my dad and the resilience and strength of my mom. My dad passed away from heart disease at the age of 64. He was an amazing dad, with the biggest heart, who loved me and taught me tons. My mom is a survivor! She survives, due to the dedication of the AHA and it's supporters. My mom is still creating memories and going strong at the young age of 93!
Running the Chicago Marathon for the American Heart Association is extremely motivating knowing that your generous donations will be put toward furthering other's lives and increasing education around heart disease. My minimum fundraising goal is $1750.00. If you are able to donate please know how much I appreciate you! If you can not... I love and appreciate you too! Please just send me your most intense mojo to help me cross the finish line!
If you wish, please share with me the name of someone special who has been affected by heart disease. I will include them in my training and race day mantra.
Fun Fact! I will be running 4 days following my 60th birthday! My gift to myself!
