Run the Chicago Marathon
Team In Training

This year I will be running the Chicago Marathon to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I am terrified and excited and have no idea what it will be like. Thank goodness I have good friends and family to support me during this process. I will have an update at the beginning of October!

Pick up trash in a clean up day
National Day Of Service

Marking the 10th anniversary of September 11 there was a major push to participate in a day of service around this weekend. While working with Habitat for the past few weeks we joined forces with the city to play a neighborhood clean up day for this weekend. We decided to go out into a target area where some habitat homes are located. We went into abandoned lots and cleaned out all the junk. This one home looked like a forest before we got there. I really wish I had some pictures to show the difference of before and after. You would have been amazed! Anyway I felt really good about being out there. Not only to help the community but to help remember September 11th in a great way. I really like the idea of a National Day of Service and think I will be participating in it every year :)

Donate a year of my life to service
Americorps Vista

I’ve been waiting to post about this to make sure all (or at least most) of the details lined up before I broke the news out of my shell of friends. As of now I will be donating a year of my life to service through the Americorp Volunteers In Service To America (VISTA) program. I have formally accepted my offer with Habitat for Humanity International in their Lake County office. While what I will exactly be doing is unclear I don’t think I could be more excited if I tried. I am so lucky and thankful for the amazing opportunity. I will be able to take the next year of my life and use to to not only better myself but the community in which I will be serving. I can officially enjoy the rest of my summer as I await training to begin in August. This is a huge step and a huge life change and I think the transition will be a great one.
