Elizabeth's First Marathon - Running for Literacy

Reading is the key to knowledge. I am running the Chicago Marathon to raise support for Concordia University Chicago's Center for Literacy, to help enhance the reading skills of children from the community in order for them to gain the key to knowledge. This will be my first marathon so I am hoping to complete the marathon in under five hours. I am asking for your support in this endeavor by pledging: $26 ($1 per mile), $62(my age!), $150 ( in honor of Concordia's 150th anniversary) or any amount of your choosing. Thank you for your support!
