Concordia University Chicago

Eric and Missy Hawley

In it for the long Hawl...ey

We're going to be running the full 26.2 miles together -- including the miles where Missy carries me.

When we ran in 2011 we experienced an incredible closeness in our marriage. Despite the tough training and long miles, we grew closer through our common physical challenge. Just like in our struggles in life, they become a lot easier if you have someone to walk next to. (or run)

This year we're running and raising money for Concordia's Health and Wellness Center. We both want to see a place where the Concordia community can exercise and be healthy.

This will be our second marathon, but first time to raise $6,000. Will you help us and be part of our story?

-------------------------------------------------------------

Just to sweeten the deal...

$30 will get you real time text updates during the race as we pass checkpoints

$100 will get you text updates and a sign designed by you that will be held up during the race by our cheering section - Cheer us on even if you can't be there!

$230 will get you everything previously listed and a FULL MILE SPONSORSHIP for both of us. Be sure to designate which mile you want us to run in your honor! We will plan to call you while we are running your mile.

Thank you
