Welcome to Victoria's Personal Fundraising Page!
Why I'm Running
On October 11th, I will be representing Advocate Health Care as a member of the charity running team at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon! As a member of the charity running team, I will be training, fundraising, and ultimately running 26.2 miles to benefit nursing, patients and families.
Running the Chicago Marathon is an important goal of mine. After playing competitive sports in college, I needed to find another way to stay active. In the last year, I started running and realized the powerful impact it had on my life. It has helped me physically and emotionally become a healthier, stronger person. I was motivated to sign up for the marathon after reading this quote- "If you do not take risks in life, number one, you would never find out how strong you are. Number two, you would never grow."
Running my first marathon will be challenging, but accomplishing this goal will also be helping another passion of mine, nursing. I decided to join Advocate's Charity Running Team to specifically raise money for my fellow nurses. Donating to my fundraiser will help me acheive my goal and you will also be helping nurses advance their career and give them the tools to take the best care possible of their patients.
