Meet Team United Way
My name is Chris, and I love running.
As a child, I lived a sheltered life. It was a time when I would rather bury my face in a book than play outside like any normal child would do. As a result, I grew up to be very shy and socially awkward among strangers.
As I aged, my natural curiosity towards things won me over. I started trying to live a more active lifestyle. I learned how to snowboard, went hiking more often, learned how to wall climb, took up yoga, and practiced Muay Thai.
During my evolution I fell in love with running.

On Oct 8, 2017 I will be participating in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, taking me one step closer to accomplishing my goal of completing all the World Major marathons.
Along side of my efforts towards this marathon, I want to support a good cause while at it. United Way has always been an organization that I have been involved with. As the largest non-governmental supporter of social services in the region, they are dedicated to creating the opportunities people need to improve their lives and build a better future.
