The Walter and Connie Payton Foundation
Bank of America 2010 Chicago Marathon
Support Team Sweetness and help the children of Illinois! The Walter and Connie Payton Foundation's mission is to help abused, neglected & underprivileged children in the state of Illinois. We strive to help boost these children’s self-esteem and give them a reason to believe that tomorrow can be different.....That tomorrow can be better!

We are dedicated to the emotional healing of neglected, abused and underprivileged children by providing tools and opportunities to build self-esteem and encourage a better family unit giving hope for a brighter future.

“Children have always brought a tremendous amount of joy to me and I feel that if you can catch them at a young age you can really change a life. There are a lot of studies that show that one act of kindness to these children has a 40% chance of making that child have a completely different outcome in their life. What you hope is that you can get a kid to believe in something and to believe in themselves.”

-Walter Payton #34
