Kathy Gebhardt - 2014 Chicago Marathon
The 2014 Chicago Marathon will be my 7th full marathon! # 7 is my FAVORITE number. Therefore, this one should be special, right?
I ran the Chicago Marathon last year for Concordia and I can honestly say that it was my most enjoyable marathon experience yet. The team comraderie, the support from many CUC faculty, staff, and students, and the thrill of running down the streets of Chicago made this a very great event. However, even though these factors all contributed to a successful race (and a PR for me), the satisfaction of giving something back to my beloved alma mater was truly what meant the most to me.
Concordia's new fitness facility has been a tremendous asset to our campus community. Therefore, I would ask that you please consider donating $10, $20, or even $100 to support the CUC fitness facility. Our campus community has been blessed with a state-of-the-art facility where every student, staff, and faculty member can improve his/her health. Your support would help to make sure that this facility will be around for many years to come.
Thank you (in advance) for your financial support, thoughts, and prayers.
God's Blessings Always,
