Hello Family, Friends, Colleagues, Loved Ones!
Thank you for taking the time to look at my fundraising page! My name is Marco Mares and I will be running the 2022 Chicago Marathon in support of a nonprofit organization named Latinos Progresando. I have always enjoyed running but did not begin to take it seriously until early 2021. I began slowly by jogging around Saint Xavier University and gradually began to increase my distance. I have since then ran a few 5K's, 10K's, and even ran my 1st half marathon! The obvious next goal for me is to complete my 1st full marathon, and what better way to accomplish that goal than also supporting a great cause! Please help this great organization continue to offer its many positive social services, any assistance is much appreciated.
LP (Latinos Progresando) is a Chicago-based nonprofit organization specializing in the issues of immigration legal services, community health, education, and peace. As an extension of this work, LP leads the Marshall Square Resource Network, a 45-partner collaborative on Chicago’s southwest side that builds the capacity of member agencies and advances integrated solutions. As part of my pledge to run in support of Latinos Progresando, I will be raising an amount of $1750. All funds raised will continue to support LP in offering all of their many great social programs.
