Charity-o-Rama for June 7, 2007!

Posted by Filed Under: Charity & Fundraising

Wow, there’s a lot of people running the 2007 LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon in October? Who knew?

For instance, Princess Runner is one of them. She’s raising $1,400 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through the Team in Training program.

Help this princess reach her goal here.


Guess what? Connie Dressen is also raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society though the Team in Training program. And she really needs our help!

Connie says:

I am training to participate in a MARATHON!! I have become a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training and I am training for the Nike Women’s Marathon held on October 21, 2007, in San Francisco. Please donate, I have been unable to get any donations so far.

Now that is just sad! Donate to Connie here.


One of CRN’s own, Jessica, of My Southern California Trail Running is raising money for the American Heart Association. Jessica says:

I’m running in the 27th Annual Orange County Heart Walk. In 2002 I had open heart surgery to repair a damaged mitral valve. The surgery was a great success and I hold heart related causes very close!

Please donate to Jessica’s great cause here.


Another CRN author, Peter of DC Spinster, is also running the LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon on October 7, 2007, and raising money for A Running Start Foundation, a non-profit “dedicated to using the power of sports to improve the lives of young East Africans.” Peter asks that you show your support by pledging $1 or $2 or more for each mile he runs. Says Peter: “Chicago will be my fifteenth marathon, but my first one running for charity.”

Go help Peter reach his goal of $500 here.

It’s a known fact that runners are the most generous and charitable of athletes. Look through all our charity roundups here and find a cause or a person you would like to help out. You’ll never know how much your contribution will be appreciated.
