On Sunday, October 9, 2022, I will be running 42.2 kilometers through the streets of Chicago with 40,000 other runners on a most glorious adventure: The Bank of America Chicago Marathon!
I cannot do this alone, however. To make this venture even more meaningful to me, I am running with Team ChiParks for the Chicago Parks Foundation. I cannot emphasize enough just how much the parks in this city have given to me and fellow Chicagoans. From Millennium Park where I have wandered around creating photographs of daily urban life, to the boathouses and docks along the river from which I have launched my kayak, the parks in Chicago have become so integral to my life. Indeed, it is the Lakefront Trail that has allowed me to become the runner I am today.
As a gift for your generosity, anyone donating a sum of $75 or more will receive a fine art photographic print from this special series I have put together to celebrate the beauty and uniqueness that the parks in Chicago have to offer. Each 8x12 inch print will come mounted in a 11x14 mat, ready for framing. Once your qualifying donation has been received, I will personally reach out to you via email for details on which print you want--or printS if you donate multiple increments of $75.
