2019 Renew Chicago Tri Team


This August, I am excited to complete the Chicago Triathlon for the 2nd time! While I love training and swimming/biking/running around the city all summer, the real reason I'm determined to finish this race again is to support Breakthrough. Breakthrough is an amazing organization that loves this city in a neighborhood in need. Last year, my donors generously contributed over $2,000 in support of Breakthrough and I'm hoping to exceed $2,500 this year! Please check out more information below.

Any donations or prayers you would be willing to provide would be so much appreciated. THANK YOU!

BREAKTHROUGH (http://www.breakthrough.org/)

Breakthrough is committed to community revitalization in East Garfield Park on Chicago's West Side, and for 25 years has followed a profoundly simple formula: people first. Each year, Breakthrough provides housing, food, job training, medical care, education, and youth development activities to over 5,000 local residents. Throughout all of its services, Breakthrough envisions a vibrant, healthy community in which all people recognize their God given value and where success is the norm and families prosper.

I've had the privilege of volunteering with Breakthrough for the past year teaching the kids in Robotics 101 and Javascript 101. It's been a joy to see the kids so exited to learn and build things on their own and your support will continue to provide incredible opportunities like this to community that would not otherwise have access.
