Concordia University Chicago

Jennifer Adams is Running the Pig

On May 4 I will run the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon ( as a member of the CUChicago Marathon Team. I plan to dedicate this run to my friends and family in gratitude for the many ways they have always supported my personal endeavors and professional pursuits. Flying Pig is my hometown marathon. My fiance, Eric and I will will run this first marathon together, while our parents and children cheer us on.

I am running to benefit the Concordia Center for Literacy ( The persistent achievement gap in school performace for young children necessitates institutions like Concordia University Chicago to actively work toward educational equity. Funds donated to the Center for Literacy will contribute to sustain on-going initiatives to support students and teachers in three specific ways:

1. provide programs and services that support literacy learning for students;

2. promote professional development programs and and services for teachers related to effective literacy instruction;

3. encourage CUC students and faculty to engage in meaningful and authentic research and development of best practices.

I am thrilled to promote the development of these programs at Concordia.
