Hi! My name is Lindsay, and I am running the Chicago Marathon in October this year! Running Chicago has been a bucket list goal of mine for several years, it is one of the 6 world majors! 4 years ago, I couldn't run a single mile, now I am attempting to run my first sub-4 hour marathon, in a city I have never been too!
This is a VIRTUAL RUN, allowing runners of varying abilities to participate and contribute to preserving our oceans. When brainstorming ways to fundraise, I felt like combining two things I love; RUNNING and the OCEAN only made sense! THUS: Run for the Rays was born!!!
RACE REGISTRATION IS FOR RACE ONLY. SHIRT IS OPTIONAL AND SEPARATE, USING LINK BELOW.
I joined the PADI Aware Foundation team and have pledged to raise $1750 for ocean conservation and marine life preservation. When searching the charity teams available to join for this race, this decision was easy for me. I am a diver and have always loved the ocean. I understand the importance that healthy ocean ecosystems has on the rest of the planet.
The PADI AWARE Foundation is a non-profit fighting to address the key threats facing the marine environment including climate change, marine debris, marine habitat loss and vulnerable species protection.
Every donation matters, great or small.
I am currently almost half way to my fundraising goal. Sign-up and RUN for the RAYS on July 22!
