Clayton "The Hotdog" James

On October 12, 2014, I will be running 26.2 miles in the Chicago Marathon. I plan to dedicate this run for my friends at Concordia University Chicago. My friends have supported me in many ways, academics, athletics, and my spiritual life. I would like to thank them by running this marathon for them and helping them by raising money to continue improving the new Fitness and Wellness Center at Concordia University Chicago.

If you would like to see some pictures of the new Fitness and Wellness Center, please go to the following website:

As a fan of Concordia Athletics, I would love to see my friends and fellow students have the best equipment possible to aid them in their training for sports and a healthier life.

Many of you know I wear a hotdog suit to many sporting events and other activities at Concordia, if I reach my goal of $1000 before the marathon, I will run the race in that same hotdog suit, if the marathon lets me and if the weather is suitable for it.

Thank you for your support and your prayers.
