We got lost. We battled minor injuries. We got sick. We slept in parks, churches and in parking lots. We got drenched by heavy rains. We ran over 200 miles! WE HAD A BLAST! … and we want to do it again next year! On behalf of Fr. Mark, Mr. Martin and all the teachers who participated, we want to thank you for your many prayers and the financial support you provided in our effort to raise money for the Catholic education programs offered in the parish.
We started out in Madison, Wisconsin at 7:00 a.m. on Friday morning and ran for over 30 consecutive hours before arriving at Montrose Avenue beach on the Chicago lakefront. There was beautiful sunshine as we traversed many hiking and bike trails in Wisconsin. By late evening, the sun had turned to clouds and the rains began as we continued the trek from Milwaukee on our way toward Chicago. By morning, the rains had eased up and the day turned beautiful as we completed our remaining legs.
Below is a list of the runners and their individual miles for those of you who pledged for individual runners. At the bottom of the list is our total mileage. Again, thank you for all your support. If you are interested in joining us next year, please let us know.
