Ashley Niven's Charity Marathon Fundraising Page
Running for a great cause for the Children of Chicago on behalf of Chicago Run
Hello and Welcome! Most of you know I have not been a runner all my life. One day last summer, I decided that I would run a marathon at some point in my life. I had never run more than 4 miles but I recently set out on a journey to run a full Marathon. In the fall I completed my first 10K, and then decided to train all winter (In the snow and sub zero temps in Boston) for a Half Marathon. I successfully completed my first Half Marathon in March and plan to run another in May. Well now here is my chance. I am lucky to be running the Chicago Marathon on 10.10.10 to benefit Chicago Run. This great charity promotes running for young adults in order to prevent Childhood Obesity. This is an issue that is near and dear to my heart. I have used running to become more active, lose weight and live an overall healthier life. Please support my endeavor to run 26.2 through the beautiful city of Chicago. Although I grew up in Massachusetts, I was born in Lake Forest, IL. So I am pleased to be going back to Chicago to run and see family! There is no amount of money that is too little. Please give whatever you can. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart and I know the kids in Chicago do too!! Please feel free to contact me at agniven@gmail.com about the charity or to ask questions about my marathon training! Thank You!!! Ashley
Thank you for supporting the Chicago Run Charity Running Team! Your donation will help bring running to children throughout Chicago and help aid in the fight against childhood obesity and promote healthy and active lifestyles. In partnership with the Chicago Public Schools, Chicago Run’s programs inspire children in largely underserved communities to improve their fitness and self-esteem through organized runs. 90% of our participants come from low-income households and often do not have the chance to participate regularly in exercise and sports activities. Through Chicago Run, our kids now have an opportunity to get fit, stay focused, and have fun through the discipline of running.
This is me after finishing my first Half Marathon in Disney World on 3.7.10!
